LXT FILM FUND (curator: Zhang Haitao)


Li Xianting’s Film Fund, also known as the LXT Film Fund, sponsored by the art critic Mr. Li Xianting, is the first non-profit research platform for Chinese independent film. On October 6, 2006, the Fund announced its establishment on the same day as the first Beijing Independent Film Festival. The fund focuses on the following activities: collecting, reserving and building a comprehensive Chinese independent film database; organizing film festivals and academic exchange events; and providing support to young talented directors. In addition, research and publishing are also an important part of its major efforts. Through open and experimental activities, the fund persists in promoting and expanding the ecological environment for creations and critiques of contemporary films.
The Li Xianting’s Film Fund consists of four parts: the Li Xianting Film Archive (established in 2006), the Li Xianting Film School (established in 2009), the Beijing Independent Film Festival (established in 2006) and the China Documentary Film Festival (established in 2003). In 2012, the Beijing Independent Film Festival and the China Documentary Film Festival combined and became one festival: the Beijing Independent Film Festival. Additionally, the Archive preserved a great number of Chinese independent films and related documentation which are open to the public. The School will open once a year to teach and help young filmmakers to continue their creation.
In the past 6 years, the Fund has held many film screening and academic communication events. It maintains a positive collaborative relationship with international film festivals, organizations, universities, and professional individuals from Japan, Belgium, Korea, Netherlands, United States, etc.
