Golden Jasmine Chinese Film Festival

goldenA collaboration between the US-China Institute and Confucius Institute at Bryant University and the Rhode Island International Film Festival


CURRENT: Special preview screenings March through April in collaboration between the US-China Institute and Confucius Institute at Bryant University, the Rhode Island International Film Festival (RIIFF).


Contemporary Chinese cinema is at the heart of the Golden Jasmine Chinese Film Festival.


The festival, which is free and open to the public is presented at Bryant University in partnership with the Rhode Island International Film Festival. The festival held its premiere screenings in September 2007.


Bryant’s Confucius Institute was the first China-funded institute in southern New England dedicated to the promotion of Chinese language and culture. This 10-year joint project between Bryant University and the Office of Chinese Language Council International offers resources to benefit students, educators, individuals, and businesses in Rhode Island and the region. Named after the revered Chinese thinker, educator, and philosopher, the Institute is managed by the U.S.-China Institute at Bryant University.
