To celebrate the Mid-Autumn and National Day festivals, the All-China Federation of Returned Overseas Chinese recently launched a project to distribute 10,000 digital movie tickets for free to overseas Chinese.

The tickets can be used on Smart Cinema, a mobile cinema app, to watch nine popular Chinese films between Sept 18 and Oct 15. As of August, Smart Cinema has digitally "screened" over 170 Chinese films in more than 20 countries and regions, including the United States, Canada, South Korea and Italy.
