"Technology always drives us forward, and we must use our imagination to surpass the challenges that technology sets for us," says Huang.

Despite facing the challenges, most Chinese filmmakers say that they have maintained their passion and love for cinema.

"Directing and producing movies have been a part of my life because of my love for cinema. However, making a movie is unique in that you need someone else to invest a large amount of money to bring your vision to life. As a result, I am always grateful for the opportunity to make films," says director Zhang.

Feng Xiaogang, one of the most renowned directors in China, reveals that he will return to the directorial chair by starting to shoot the third installment of If You Are the One later this year. The sequel is scheduled to reprise the roles of actor Ge You and actress Shu Qi, who are in the previous two movies, and maintains its trademark comedic tone.

"A few days ago, I wished Jackie Chan a happy birthday. Chan said he had been traveling across the country to promote his new movie (Ride On). Despite being quite tired, he enjoys doing it. I can relate to that. I told him that we made movies for fame, fortune, and career ambition in the past, but now we make movies because it makes us happy," says Feng.
