China Seeks Global Film Presence

China Media: Lights, Camera, Regulation
– Asian Venture Capital Journal

The Asian Venture Capital Journal interviewed Manatt’s Lindsay Conner, co-chair of the firm’s entertainment and media practice, for an article about recent Chinese investments in Hollywood.

"The Chinese investments in Hollywood are not intended primarily to bring films to China; they are an effort to invest in and be part of a global film industry that is focused on Hollywood. Even if only a few films a year from any of these companies are shown in China, the investments allow Chinese companies to learn the international film business and profit from it," Conner explained.
