Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.
The state Administration of Radio, Film and Television (SARFT) said Chollywood raked in $244 million from overseas markets last year up 16%.
SARFT said 73 films were released in 44 countries.
“Chinese films won more prizes last year than at any time in history,” said the SARFT director.
“Twenty-seven China-made films won 44 prizes at 22 international film festivals in 2006, compared with 32 prizes won by 18 films at 24 international film festivals in 2005.
“We need to take more films to well-known international film festivals, do more marketing, and organize Chinese film festivals in Hongkong, Macau, Taiwan, Europe, and America to attract bigger audiences.”
Critics say that Chollywood’s kung-fu films are the only ones that are gaining popularity overseas and the Chollywood still has a long way to go.
