ABSTRACT

Ever since 2002, the Chinese film industry has developed at an unprecedented speed along with the acceleration of industrialization of China and as a result, in 2017, the film market of China has become the 2nd largest following of North America. This development could be divided into three stages. The first could be named the stage of settlement and leap of the film industry of China from 2002 to 2009, the second could be named the stage of explosive growth and the third could be named the stage of new normal. This study investigated various characteristics of the first stage in which the film industry of China settled and its growth and development fully started. First of all, its development could not be made without efforts of the government of China for industrialization. To lower the entry threshold for the film industry, the government of China made revisions to the Film Management Ordinance and came up with reformative measures. With this enhanced political background, private enterprises could gradually develop competences to lead the film industry, and money from all levels of society was flowing into the film industry through new approaches and methods. In addition, major film studies have contributed to the expansion of the film industry and accelerated its development by incorporating many of chains of the film industry. During this process, movies have became a large part of everyday life of the public in China. However, despite this rapid development of the film industry, it is still highly emphasized on a few major cities of China. It shows how much the film industry of China has developed in this stage, but it also indicates that there is a still sufficient room for its development. Through the stage II, it reached the sales of box office of 10 billion yuan in 2010 and with the consistent development, it entered the stage of new normal in 2016.
