The UCLA Confucius Institute with the Asia Society of California held the 3rd Annual U.S. – China Film Summit in UCLA’s Covel Commons Grand Horizon Room and Terrace. About 350 attended the event that brought together prominent representatives of the motion picture industry interested in co-production of films in China. The summit was followed by a gala dinner for about 180 guests to celebrate the connections made between Hollywood and Chinese filmmakers.
UCLA Catering assisted the event’s planners by procuring an extensive list of special services including décor, special audio/visual equipment, and filming services. A major goal achieved by UCLA Catering was to quickly and discreetly flip the large event space from a theater-style set-up to a completely different type of event—a reception and sit-down meal.
