The second China Online Movie Week, recently concluded in Chengdu, capital of Southwest China's Sichuan province, crowned seven movies as the most influential online movies of the year, including fantasy adventure Double directed by Ding Ziyang, fantasy movie The Enchanting Phantom and adventure movie Snake 2, both directed by Lin Zhenzhao.

The three-day event, held from Nov 11 to 13 in Anren ancient town on the outskirts of Chengdu, capital of Southwest China's Sichuan province, also featured a forum centered around new opportunities for online movies, integration of big-screen movies and online ones, as well as a search for young talent to inject new vitality into the development of China's online film industry.

Statistics show the number of internet audio-and-video users in China reached 901 million as of June, covering 95.8 percent of all internet users in the country.

"It's a very large market," said Yang Xianghua, president of membership and overseas business group of iQiyi. "The reality film Spring Tide, which was first broadcast on iQiyi (instead of cinemas), won the nominations of Best Picture and Best Director in this year's Golden Rooster Awards. It means good movies are not limited to distribution models - whether on big or small screens. This gives us full confidence in the future."
