Central Academy of Fine Arts

Jointly hosted by the Central Academy of Fine Arts(CAFA) and the China Foundation of Culture and Arts for Children(CFCAC), the “Lighthouse International Charity Film Festival” will be held from March 30th to April 5th, 2019 at Central Academy of Fine Arts(CAFA) in Beijing, including Film Screening, In Competition, Academic Forum and Art Exhibitions. The Academic Forum focuses on autism and art therapy, and uses the art exhibitions and competition of films as the media to facilitate international communication and discussion. The organizing committee will invite global experts and scholars of the fields of art, education, psychology and medicine to an interdisciplinary academic dialogue. The conversation will explore social cognition, special education, art interventions, design interventions, clinical applications and other topics all around the world.

Lighthouse International Charity Film Festival is an academic platform for international communications and submissions all around the world are acceptable. We believe Lighthouse will draw attention to Autism and raise awareness of the special population.

In order to encourage excellent and innovative filmmakers, Lighthouse International Charity Film Festival will reward them with pirzes.

Beyond film screening and academic communications, we also establish Master Workshops for young filmmakers. We hope this festival can be a platform for international communications, so we can discuss art and social issues together for good causes.

We remain faithful to make Lighthouse International Charity Film Festival sustainable, high-standard and influential which can be an indispensable force to promote charity.
