City will get museum of film by end of year

SHANGHAI is to have its own film museum by the end of this year, officials said yesterday at the 15th Shanghai International Film Festival.

Shen Yun, granddaughter of famous Chinese playwright and screenwriter Xia Yan, donated Xia's books, scripts and letters to the Shanghai Film Museum. Xia was the pseudonym of Shen Naixi.

Celebrated Chinese film director Wu Yigong donated the prize certificate of his film "My Memories of Old Beijing," which won the Best Feature Film award at the Manila International Film Festival in 1983.

"Shanghai, the cradle of Chinese film, has made great contributions to the domestic film industry," said Ren Zhonglun, president of Shanghai Film Group Corporation. "It has been a dream of several generations of local filmmakers to build a film museum in the city."

The museum is located at the original site of Shanghai Film Group Corp in the Xujiahui area and will open to public by year's end. It will feature exhibition halls covering 10,000 square meters, a 4D-theater that combines 3D film with synchronized effects and film studios that offer visitors simulated experiences of being a film director, an actor or a cameraman.
