The Summer Program in Chinese Film History and Criticism is especially well
suited for:

Chinese cinema,

Chinese films. 

The program is hosted at the Beijing Film Academy on July 2-29, 2007. 12
quarter credits are earned at the University of Washington and are
transferable to other institutions. No knowledge of Chinese is required.

professors from outside Asia (Chris Berry, Yomi Braester, and James Tweedie)
and three faculty members of the Beijing Film Academy. The program also
includes meetings with filmmakers (last year's guest speakers included,
among others, Jia Zhangke, Tian Zhuangzhuang, Zhang Yuan, and Wang Chao).
The program cost is $2,900 + registration fee.
