On June 10th, Ziyi attended the event Her Film Era Forum: Life Without Limits co-presented by Shanghai International Film Festival and Dior at the newly renovated Shengli Cinema in Shanghai with Hong Kong director Peter Chan. The actress accepted the Dior Female Filmmaker of the Year award.
The same day, Ziyi and Peter Chan then traveled to Suzhou to attend the 2023 Weibo Movie Awards, where they appeared together on the red carpet. They both shared some details about their upcoming collaboration, tentatively titled Murder of the Husband or The Murderer. Peter Chan told the interviewer that he’s been hoping to work with Ziyi for about 20 years. Afterwards, Ziyi and Shen Teng won Influential Filmmaker of the Year.
As stated by Peter Chan that day, the filming Murder of the Husband has not started yet, but it’s likely to start in Shanghai in the coming months.
On April 21st, Ziyi joined the cast and crew of The Great War to promote the film at the opening ceremony of the 13th Beijing International Film festival. Once again, she was effortlessly stunning. A poster of Ziyi’s character Tang Sheng was also released, along with a new theatrical trailer, without any trace of Ziyi at all.
The next day, Ziyi attended the press conference of this year’s Aranya Theater Festival, of which she is one the the artistic directors.
Ziyi just won two prizes at the 7th Golden Crane Awards in Japan. Affiliated with the prestigious Tokyo International Film Festival, the China Film Week celebrates and honors Chinese cinema with the Golden Crane Awards. This Year, Ziyi was awarded Best Actress and Best New Director for My Country, My parents. The actress unsurprisingly couldn’t attend the ceremony in Japan, but nonetheless sent a video that can be watched below.
The Chinese Edition of Marie Claire is featuring Ziyi on their September issue with four different covers. The gorgeous photoshoot was taken by Xu Ruang in Xining, while she was the Director of the jury of the FIRST Youth Film Festival. We updated the website with videos and all the available pictures.
Along with director Huang Jianxin, Liu Haoran and many other big names in the Chinese film industry, Ziyi attended a press conference at the 16th Beijing Film Festival. They shared some thoughts on the future of Chinese filmmaking.
Some quotes of Ziyi during the conference:
I believe teamwork is an indispensable part of producing high-quality films. We need directors, actors, screenwriters and other crew members to all do their best. And for our actresses, I think one of the most important things is to have enough understanding of the characters and have a strong faith in themselves and their abilities.
Also we talk about what is a ‘Superior’ film, but I don’t think anyone on stage or behind the scenes should think about it first. We should first take out our most essential sincere dedication to our career, which I think may be more important than ‘Superior.
As you may already know, Ziyi was the Jury president of the 16th FIRST Youth Film Festival in Xining this year. She attended a few events, including a screening of The Grandmaster, a press conference of the jury and of course the closing ceremony. There, she announced the best film’s winner: One and Four, directed by Jigme Trinley.
Ziyi just announced the winner or the VeeR Future Award – Best VR Story: Alex Honnold: The Soloist VR, directed by Jonathan Griffith.
“It’s been a privilege to be a part of the Cannes XR 2022 Jury. It was a unique experience to immerse myself in this new art form. Virtual reality allows us to step right into the narrative. I was able to interact with the characters, and, sometimes, I was part of the storytelling. This experience opened my eyes to the endless possibilities that this technology can offer film-making”, Ms. Zhang Ziyi said.
