What Is CNEX
 

CNEX is the short form of “Chinese Next”. It’s a non-profit foundation devoted to the production and promotion of documentaries of the Chinese people. CNEX strives to facilitate cultural exchange between Chinese and the rest of the world through supporting documentaries depicting contemporary Chinese – people of Chinese ethnicity, their living and their society.

CNEX aspires to become a platform supporting Chinese documentary filmmakers to enhance a sustainable strategy for the contemporary Chinese documentary making. CNEX aims to establish and develop a library of global Chinese nonfiction works to preserve visuals and cultures of Chinese communities, especially in a time of unprecedented rapid changes happening in this ancient culture.

 
Who We Are
 

We have a great team consisting of professional film makers, passionate staff and volunteers, as well as an expanding advisory board.

Three key founding members of CNEX are:

Ben Tsiang (CEO),
Ruby Chen (COO)
and Chang Chaowei (Chief Producer).

 
What We Do
 

·Annual thematic production and exhibition
There will be a chosen theme announced annually to solicit documentary films, articles, publications, and art works through online and offline submission. This will allow CNEX to produce, collect and disseminate influential works.

·CNEX Documenta
Based on the chosen theme of the year, CNEX will host a series of activities to explore and create cultural works, climaxing in the CNEX Documenta – a film festival with workshops and art exhibition. One clear goal of hosting Documenta is to preserve the development history of the Chinese people at the beginning of the 21st century to serve as a memoir for our future generations.

·Publication and promotion
CNEX will invite well-known commentators and culture experts from Mainland China, Taiwan and Hong Kong for composing articles or participating in the forums on the chosen theme. It will also promote the documentaries produced and the collated intellectual achievements through diversified channels, campuses exhibitions, cultural venues, international film and TV festivals, overseas Chinese communities, as well as forms of new media.

 
Theme of 2007-- “MONEY$”
 

After the phenomenal economic growth and wealth accumulation in the past two decades, Chinese people faced the problems of uneven wealth distribution and the challenge of rebuilding social values.

CNEX hopes to capture a snap shot in the history of the Chinese at the beginning of the 21st century, reflecting the value of money. This theme in 2007 had generated a series of 9 documentary films made by directors from China, Hong Kong and Taiwan.

 
Coming Up...
 

Stay tuned for the new theme of 2008 projects-- “DREAMS & HOPES”
