Artistic committee members will include veteran actresses Zhou Xun and Hao Lei, and actors Huang Bo and Hu Ge, as well as contemporary Chinese artist Yue Minjun and Travis Preston, who is the artistic director of the CalArts Center for New Performance and dean of the CalArts School of Theater.

The festival's competition jury will see artists, such as director-playwright Stan Lai, actor-director Huang Lei and theater director Yang Ting.
