Latest Updates of 11th BJIFF: Jackson Yee Acts as Youth Publicity and Promotion Ambassador

Jul 26, 2021

The 11th Beijing International Film Festival (BJIFF) welcomes another headliner filmmaker, Jackson Yee (Yi Yangqianxi), a young Chinese actor who serves as the Youth Publicity and Promotion Ambassador of this edition of the event. At the BJIFF, let’s encounter the diversity in the film world. The official promotional film released by the Organizing Committee of the Beijing International Film Festival starts with the logo, composing a windmill, in white and ended with the colorful one. Every transition wipe resembles the microcosm of the process of countless filmmakers creating amazing films. In the official promotional film, Jackson Yee, the representative of young filmmakers, forges ahead on a journey to explore the mystery of the film "from blank to what it is today" with a strong belief of the new generation of filmmakers, "letting films speak of feelings."   Success and recognition through quality: Yee has an exciting future ahead of him in pursuit of film career Setting himself apart from young filmmakers, Jackson Yee’s identity as "a new generation or a new force of the film industry" is highly aligned with the theme of the 11th BJIFF, "New Opportunity · New Horizon". At the beginning of another "new decade" of the BJIFF, we join hands with Yee to keep on exploring and creating the diversity and miracles in the film world with "new power", and run into the future with hope. In 2019, Better Days, Yee’s debut film, was released, followed in the coming years by A Little Red Flower and Chinese Doctors, both of which were highly credited. Behind the successful track records is Yee’s continued focus on and belief in performance, who views putting a lot into performance as the very foundation on which he grains ground and aptly communicates characters’ emotions to the audience after repeated exercises and attempts. In addition, Yee’s vision for paying attention to realistic issues is also a reflection of a young filmmaker's strong sense of social responsibility. Be it his already-screened works, or the upcoming The Battle at Lake Changjin that tells the years of the War to Resist U.S. Aggression and Aid Korea and Miracle in cooperation with director Wen Muye, they are all adapted from real events and in turn feed the reality, into which the joys and sorrows of the man’s world and the ups and downs of time are packaged. Yee’s every piece of work arouses a long-lasting echo among audience and stands the test of time, albeit at a very start of his film career. The sky’s the limit. A new game with bright spots: the BJIFF forges ahead with a focus on reflecting reality Literary and artistic works absorb nutrients from reality, and in turn reflect reality and in return prosper society. Any excellent artist should always keep an eye on realistic society. That’s also the case with BJIFF, where there will be a large number of great, well-produced movies focusing on reality. They may be a treasure waiting for the audience to discover at the Beijing Film Panorama, a seed sowed at the Project Pitches, one out of those masterpieces mentioned at the Theme Forum, or an unforgettable classic shared and exchanged at the Workshop & Masterclass. These great films, which showcase the beauty of culture and tell stories of China and the world, are an important way in which the film plays a powerful role in reflecting social reality. Forging ahead hand in hand with young filmmaker Jackson Yee in a hopeful era, the 11th BJIFF creates a diversified exchange platform for filmmakers around the world with various innovative, inclusive and forward-looking initiatives to embrace another "new decade.” To this end, this edition has been comprehensively upgraded and transformed: the Beijing Film Panorama will expand to reach more movie fans across Tianjin and Hebei outside of Beijing for the first time, allowing them to experience the charm of film art; the Beijing Film Market will launch BJIFF TALENTS for the first time to push the new generation of filmmakers forward; the Film Carnival will launch night activities for the first time, among others. The new additions are a clear statement of the courage of the BJIFF to welcome the "new decade" with a high-spirited attitude and its determination to bring a film festival full of new opportunities, new horizon and new surprises to movie fans at home and abroad. The BJIFF invites more sincere filmmakers, audiences and people from all walks of life to participate in the various activities, bringing new life to the Chinese film and adding fuel to the world film. Come and enjoy the world’s best films at the BJIFF in Beijing, and cheer for the Chinese film industry!

Emergence of HDAO - The Much-Anticipated IDO Platform

Jul 26, 2021

The development of science and technology has promoted the progress of the modern world, and the financial industry is an important measure of the extent of social development which will constantly evolve with the input of new technology, such as blockchain. Blockchain technology can bring new forms of financing methods to the market, and also change business processes to reduce operational complexity and transaction costs.   With the emergence of new financing models, a new generation of financing methods based on blockchain technology has been launched globally. Amongst them, one of the most highly anticipated launch is HDAO, an IDO platform that not only fulfils immediate market needs, but one that has also created a digital financial ecosystem where users can easily invest and participate in. What are the advantages of IDO? First of all, let us understand what IDO is. IDO refers to “Initial Dex Offering”. Why is this financing method gaining popularity and what are its advantages? Compared with ICO that everyone is familiar with in 2017, and IEO in 2019, IDO directly issue tokens to individual investors or traders in a decentralized manner. With IDO,  there is much lower cost of listing since IDO often lists on liquidity exchange where projects only need to pay a small gas fee for deploying a smart contract on the exchange.   In addition, for IEOs, project teams will need to cooperate with a centralized exchange to be able to hold an IEO, where many terms must first be established with the exchange, and there is no autonomy in the number of tokens issued, nor on the price of tokens. In comparison, the IDO fundraising model is open and fair where everyone gets the same access to purchasing tokens in liquidity exchanges. Tokens also get instant liquidity with liquidity pools and price of coins move fairly with the bonding curve model. Everyone can try to acquire tokens at the earliest and sell the coin as the price move upwards.   Therefore, even though IDO is similar to IEO, it is better for projects to choose IDO over IEO in many ways. Many projects have begun to use IDO to raise funds, the most well-known examples being the Raven and MahaDAO protocols.   In consideration of the factors listed above, HDAO, one of the leading projects in the market, has officially launched its IDO platform! As a well-known decentralized trading platform, the HDAO platform will work to provide users with a convenient and efficient integrated investment ecosystem. Leading a new revolution for digital investments and financial management in 2021, HDAO's IDO platform will accelerate the growth and development of the digital economy and provide users with the access to explore new opportunities and accelerate their returns.   The HDAO Platform As a one-stop crowdfunding platform, HDAO is committed to providing investors and entrepreneurs with transparent, safe, comprehensive and fair financial services. The main function of the platform will be to connect investors with high-quality projects and provide a fair access to investment opportunities. Users’ trust is the key for HDAO to maintain its competitive advantage, so its IDO platform will entrust key decisions to the community to decide on factors such as coin listing, crowdfunding amount, lock-up period, etc. through voting. Governance will be handed to HDAO user and community interests will be the top priority for HDAO. In the decentralized financial world, there are always opportunities and innovations. HDAO will seize the current momentum and explore all areas of possible growth through the launch of its IDO platform.   To celebrate the launch, HDAO’s IDO platform will be holding a series of exclusive staking events for users. Users can participate in HDAO’s staking activities on the platform and enjoy up to 48% APY! The event will last for two weeks, from July 28, 2021 to August 11, 2021, to encourage users to participate on the platform and benefit from the highly attractive APY.
