“Forum on Film Finance, Production & Distribution in U.S. & China A Guide for U.S. & Asian Movie Makers"


As U.S. and China movie makers look for more real opportunities in Hollywood and China you may wonder what are the difference in Film Finance, Production and Distribution in two Countries?  Chinese investors flood into U.S feature film investment and seek for opportunities. Hollywood has been full of temptation, but it doesn't mean YOU——the investor,  can get the benefit out of your investment.  


Should I invest theatrical films at major studios or in the independent film world?


How to do film selection and green light analysis? 


How to negotiate deal terms and structure?


How does distribution proceeds “waterfalls” for foreign (or Asian or Chinese) investors?


If you are: Asian investor with capital for film investment, filmmakers, interested in film investing or film companies looking for funding for your projects, this forum is just for YOU! 


On the event day, we've invited some special movie makers, investors and attorneys who have years of experiences working in the U.S and China film industry to analysis and discuss on "U.S film investment" and share the real guide for investors.

Lessing Gold 金利辛

MSK Partner MSK律师事务所合伙人

ACCS Board Director

As the godfather to the security industry, Lessing (Les) Gold has a reputation second to none. Beginning with forming what is now the California Alarm Association in 1958 and his early experiences in getting the most formidable player in the space, Protection One, off the ground established his reputation in an industry focused on protecting people. It’s ironic that Les has spent his entire career, spanning decades, doing just that . . . protecting people around the globe.

From companies and individuals across the United States to those in faraway places like Japan, China, and Western Europe, Les has been counted on as a trusted advisor. The relationships he’s developed extend well beyond anything of a typical lawyer. As someone sought out for counsel on a wide range of issues, Les has managed to engender loyalty that stands the test of time. Considered a senior statesman by many who know him, he has consistently delivered results for people close to him. And their appreciation is shown around his office with gifts considered priceless. Ranging from a miniature scroll that displays the history of China to the life size sheep sculptures, Les proudly displays memorabilia . . . each of them with a rich history he fondly shares.
