Aspiring NYU Graduates Dedicated to Bridging the Gap Between U.S. and Chinese Film Industries Will Present Clip of their Production “Enduring Legacy – China Story”
New York, NY (December, 2016) — Having been very busy as of late helping to produce films in both China and the United States–like their recent feature “Generals of the Yang Family” (in partnership between Tencent and China’s Deadwood Studio)–NY based film company Owltainment was recently invited by Elizabeth B. Wang, President of the Chinese Cultural Foundation, to participate in this year’s Annual Award Celebration of the Chinese Cultural Foundation on Wednesday, December 14th at Harvard Club of New York City (35 W 44th St, New York, NY 10036)! The company will be premiering a clip from their newest production “Enduring Legacy – China Story” among a cavalcade of attendees including Chairman of the Chinese Cultural Foundation Maurice R. Greenberg along with 2016 Honorees John A. Catsimatidis and China Construction America Chairman Ning Yuan.
Owltainment was founded by Yuanyuan Chen and Mingda Dong, two New York University students who decided to use their creative talents to–among many others–help create daring and unique new concepts. The company uses innovative ideas such as cell phone filmmaking, showing others with or without a film production background how to share their stories with the “camera” in their pocket. In addition to this creative concept, Owltainment also produces features and documentaries with regular cameras, teaming up with specialists. And while filmmaking has been a hot topic in both the U.S. and China for many years, Owltainment is continuing to help bring the two industries closer together.

With a versatile approach, helping to introduce American film scholars to China and hosting lectures and seminars for Chinese students and filmmakers, the company has been taking a head-on approach to film education. As film festival organizers they continually host, support, and implement activities (like the Honor Festival) for Film Festivals both in the U.S. and China.
The Chinese Cultural Foundation is a New York based 501(C)(3) philanthropic organization, and its mission is to promote and share the understanding of Chinese culture in the U.S. and around the world.
