Work on multimedia base begins

Construction of an entertainment, film and television production base in Songjiang broke ground yesterday, as the suburban district looks to provide a boost to its Shanghai Hi-Tech Films and Televisions City with global influence.

The project covers 10 hectares of land. With an investment of 1.143 billion yuan (US$177 million), the first phase covering 6.4 hectares will comprise eight high-tech studios, multimedia production and webcast bases, and supporting facilities.

It is scheduled to begin operations in the second half of 2023, helping fuel the development of the film and TV industries in the Yangtze River Delta region.

The base is financed and operated by STAR Group and Shanghai Canxing Culture and Media.

It is expected to produce more than 100 TV series, reality shows, advertisements, short videos and other digital content projects every year, and attract 200 to 300 companies. It will provide jobs for 5,000 people and train more than 2,000 people in the industry every year.

“The construction of Shanghai Hi-Tech Films and Televisions City is in full swing, and the aim is to make the district an integration center of hi-tech films and the television industry, as well as a window for cultural exchanges between domestic and foreign film and television industries,” said Zhao Yong, district deputy governor.

Film and TV has become one of the district’s pillar industries.
