Chinese Language Film Society

Chinese Language Film Society

The Chinese Language Film Society at UC San Diego was founded by a group of GPS students to highlight and take advantage of the university’s special Chinese film library. Because of outstanding Chinese film scholarship at the university and the guidance of GPS former head librarian Jim Cheng, the UC San Diego collection of underground Chinese films is now the largest in North America.

The Chinese Language Film Society (CLFS) is organized to screen motion pictures with the goal of increasing participants’ knowledge of Chinese speaking regions, cultures, peoples, histories, trends, and filmmaking styles for an audience of students, faculty, and staff—both Chinese experts and non-experts. To encourage maximum participation, understanding, and dialogue, films of historical or current import in any Chinese dialect will be screened with English subtitles, intertitles, or accompanying script. Post-screening, audience members are encouraged to participate in an informal roundtable discussion; when possible, with refreshments.

In 2016, the Chinese Language Film Society was merged with China Focus Student Club. The Club continues to carry on the promotion of Chinese films to the UCSD community.
