Are you interested in Chinese films?

Lancaster University Confucius Institute is offering a set of 10 Chinese film screenings on campus almost every fortnight. These should be excellent for any Chinese learners, but the invitation is open to absolutely everyone! If you fancy brushing up on your Chinese, or just want to enjoy a good film, we’d be happy to have you. And don’t worry- all our screenings feature English subtitles!
