Twenty-four students from Boston University and Emory University in the US and École de Communication Visuelle in France attended a ceremony launching the 2013 Chinese and Foreign Youth Summer DV Project on June 29 at Beijing Normal University (BNU). Foreign students will document their two-week visit in Beijing and experiences immersing themselves in Chinese culture by shooting videos, which will be judged as part of the competition.

The competition, now in its third year, is organized by BNU and the Academy for International Communication of Chinese Culture (AICCC).

“When we (AICCC) talk, people from other countries say it is propaganda, but it’s different when they (foreign students) talk themselves. Inviting young people from other countries to China and letting them see for themselves is much more powerful than us talking to them,” said Huang Huilin, dean and founder of AICCC.

The best movies will be screened at the competition’s closing ceremony on July 12.
