Mulan International Film Festival (MulanIFF) is a fledging not-for-profit dedicated to showcasing the best of Chinese-language films and historically significant films about China.

We are looking for spectacular and one-of-a-kind talents to join us. If you too believe in getting your hands dirty and challenging the status quo, and have passion and knowledge about Chinese-language films, we promise you one hell of a ride and your chance to change the landscape of contemporary Chinese cinema.

While full of unreciprocated loves and outright rejections, the treasure hunt that is selling sponsorship promises outsized results for the determined and immerse adrenaline rush for the unrelinquished.  For those brave, resilient and strong enough to see it through, there are so, so much to learn, and plenty of bitter-sweet fun to be had, in the process.
