Promoting Chinese Cultural Exchange Around The World
About The Athene Festival
What is the Athene Festival, and What are the Athene Awards?
The Athene Festival is an annual event when leading figures from the UK and Chinese Film, television and entertainment industries, come together with Chinese investors, for five days discussions and screenings with the aim of promoting and encouraging cultural exchange with China. The highlight of the Athene Festival is the Athene Guild Awards Ceremony and Gala Dinner, which will be held at the Guildhall in the heart of the City of London. The Athene Guild Awards, voted for by the Chinese public, honour the best work of any nationality seen on Chinese screens the preceding year. Awards are also given in arts and craft design, recognising the best brand designs of the year across a range of products.
