Sebastian Bieniek at 2007 Shanghai International Film Festival press conference
Along with Tokyo International Film Festival, the SIFF is one of the biggest film festivals in Asia. The first festival was held from October 7 to 14, 1993, and was held until 2001. In 2003 there was no festival due to the SARS outbreak. Since its beginning in 1993, Shanghai International Film Festival has grown to become an A-category international film festival.
SIFF organized by Shanghai Municipal Administration of Culture, Radio, Film & TV and Shanghai Media & Entertainment Group. It awards several "Golden Goblet" Awards (Chinese: 金爵; pinyin: Jin Jue) for best film, best director, best actor/actress, and other categories, as well as a "Special Jury Award." SIFF Mart consists of the Film Market, China Film Pitch and Catch (CFPC), and Co-production Film Pitch and Catch (Co-FPC). The SIFFORUM is a communication platform.
The most prestigious award given out at Shanghai is the Jin Jue ("Golden Goblet") for the Best Feature Film.
An award launched in 2004 aimed at gathering new forces in film creativity, excavating/tapping fresh young faces on screens, and boosting newly made productions by young film makers into worldwide perspective.
International Student Shorts Award was introduced since the 9th SIFF in 2006, as a stage for the young people to communicate with renowned film masters and to display their works. It is one of the three grand awards of Shanghai International Film Festival, together with Golden Goblet Award and Asian New Talent Award, by which more and more students approach to the world film industry.
