Wuxi’s ‘Huallywood’ Becomes New Center for Film Production

Wuxi’s ‘Huallywood’ Becomes New Center for Film Production
Oct 16, 2014 By eChinacities.com

The Wuxi authorities have turned an old steelworks into a film studio in order to develop the local film industry and develop young talent. The studio has been up and running for around two years, and has seen a huge influx of students and independent artists coming to the studio to master the art.

The local government, which offers 500 RMB a month subsidies for college graduates who go to work there, originally invested in the studio as a response to China’s ‘weak’ cultural industry.

The studio has since come on in leaps and bounds and has collaborated with domestic productions as well as working on movies from Hollywood and South Korea.
