    The 66th Berlin International Film Festival came to a close on Saturday night with very little attention paid to the event in China. Though Chinese film Crosscurrent won a Silver Bear Yankees Gary Sanchez Jersey , the news did little to stir Chinese moviegoers' interest in this year's festival.

    Besides the fact that none of the featured films at the Berlin festival have been shown in China, a lack of famous stars at the event is another reason behind the lack of interest in China. Compare this to the Cannes festival, where every year the films may remain unfamiliar to Chinese audiences, but the stars and clothing on the red carpet always contribute to a huge buzz on Chinese social media.


    The biggest award - The Golden Bear for Best Film - went to Fire at Sea, a documentary about refugees. This was the first time a documentary has won a Golden Bear at the festival Yankees Derek Jeter Jersey , yet it didn't come as much of a surprise. Fire at Sea topped the Screen Jury Grid with a 3.3, while director Gianfranco Rosi had won a Golden Lion with another documentary, Sacro GRA, at 70th Venice International Film Festival in 2013.

    Besides the quality of the film and the qualifications of its director, a more important reason that helped Fire at Sea win the attention of European media and the festival jury was its focus on the topic of refugees. A long existing social issue in Europe Yankees Mariano Rivera Jersey , it has become a serious topic since 2014. In a similar vein, last year's Golden Palm for the 68th Cannes International Film Festival went to Dheepan, which also delved into Europe's refugee problem.

    However, the film and its Golden Bear win did not earn much attention in China. On Sina Weibo, one of the most popular social media platforms in China Yankees Alex Rodriguez Jersey , a search for posts related to Fire at Sea only returned 12 hits by noon on Sunday.

    This matches up with the fact that, on the whole, the Berlin International Film Festival is not a hot topic among Chinese any more.

    Even the Chinese film that won a major award at the festival, Crosscurrent, remains an unfamiliar name in China despite staring well-known actor Qin Hao.

    Most moviegoers in China would also not recognize the name of Mark Lee Yankees Mickey Mantle Jersey , winner of the award and cinematographer for Crosscurrent, unless you mentioned that he was also the cinematographer for Wang Kar-wai's In the Mood for Love (2000).

    Hours after the winners list was released, the most popular article about the Berlin film festival circulating online in China is a review of all 42 Chinese films that have received awards at the Berlin film festival.

    A cold reception

    Berlin film festival was once regarded as a "lucky place" for Chinese films and filmmakers - it was a place where Chinese films had a chance to become known to the world. However, recent years have seen attention in China, from both audiences and filmmakers Yankees Babe Ruth Jersey , shift to the commercialized film market. How well a film has done at the box office has become the main concern rather than what awards it has won.

    Actually, lack of excitement about this year's Berlin film festival wasn't limited to China.

    As early as February 12, a report from Chinese news portal used "cold" to describe the opening ceremony.

    "Things did not take off on the red carpet until jury president Meryl Streep showed up," the report wrote.

    It seems many are of the opinion the festival is just not what it used to be.

    "The competition section of the Berlin film festival is already uninteresting. What interests me now is the Berlin festival's Teddy Award, the queer award for LGBT films Authentic Austin Romine Jersey ," Ryan Wang, an animated film director, posted on Sina Weibo.

    He added, however, that many really good films are reluctant to be labeled as LGBT films.

    "I guess films in the Berlin Teddy Award section are those that failed at Cannes and therefore decided to take part in Berlin's less competitive section."

    Wang told the Global Times that he thinks films at the Berlin festival have been rather common over the past two years.

    "The three film festivals [in Europe] always reserve some places for big name directors Authentic Aaron Judge Jersey , and some for politically-themed films, leaving little room for pure art works in the competition section," Wang explained. "Therefore many qualified works are seen in other sections."
