SMG and Disney worked with famous director Lu Chuan in producing last year's "Born in China". The movie is about the protection of China's endangered animals. It premiered in New York and Los Angeles a few days ago. Green film week participants believe environmental protection is a great cause that also resonates among movie fans.

"People can make a difference and this festival helps raise awareness and educate people of what role they can play to make a safer and cleaner world. I think China did a lot to raise the living standard for many decades, now it is a time to make a real difference to improve the environment," said Andrew Ferguson, the Australia China Business Council.

Chinese movies will be the main force in the week. A total of 40 movies will be screened in cinemas across the city during the film week. Many Chinese and overseas celebrities are expected to appear during the event in Shanghai.
