Shanghai Film Museum opens to public

SHANGHAI, June 17 (Xinhua) -- The Shanghai Film Museum, one of the country's largest film museums, opened on Monday in Shanghai, the birthplace of Chinese film.

Covering an area of 10,000 square meters, the museum features multiple exhibitions detailing the city's role in the development of China's film industry.

"I didn't expect that there has so much exhibits in the museum, which could cover all kinds of the Chinese-flavor feature films, animations and dubbed films and their production process," said Duan Xiaoxuan, cameraman of "Little Tadpole Looking for Mummy", a widely known science animation, which won multiple international awards.

The museum displays more than 3,000 exhibits, including film copy of the national anthem.

Shanghai had the biggest film market in China around the latter half of the 20th century. Its film industry features a complete industrial chain and several modern film groups. Major film companies like Disney and DreamWorks have worked with the city's film industry in recent years.
