Launched in 2018, the Hainan Island International Film Festival is the youngest international film festival in China. The handshake of the trophy's main body is a coconut tree with lush palms, symbolizing the natural growth of light and shadow. The fruit in the center of the crown represents the award-winning works, considered amazing achievements by many in the film industry.

A total of 1,495 films from 80 countries have signed up for the festival, according to the organizer.

This is the first year organizers are giving out "Golden Coconut Awards" for feature films, documentary films and short films, as well as a specially established "Best Children's Film" award.

A total of 10 awards to encourage the contributions made by all filmmakers both on and off the screen will be unveiled at the closing ceremony on December 8.

The Hainan Island International Film Festival will also make full use of the beach landscape of Hainan Island and creatively open free "outdoor beach screening" to the public. It plans to conduct island-wide film tours throughout the year, which is innovative and artistic.

CMG will broadcast the opening ceremony live through new media platforms and mainstream channels including 4K channel simultaneously.
