Qingdao's Oriental Movie Metropolis, the first film and TV industrial park in Qingdao, Shandong province took part in the AFCI (Association of Film Commissioners International) Locations Show held at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles from March 5 to 7, according to the Chinese-language Qingdao Daily.

As the only exhibitor from China, the movie metropolis attracted much attention from the organizers and overseas media.

"I think foreign crews will be deeply impressed by the culture of the coastal city of Qingdao during their potential production period in our movie metropolis which is equipped with advanced technology and government preferential policies," said Nancy Romano, COO of the Qingdao's Oriental Movie Metropolis.

The 50-billion-yuan ($8.15 billion) giant Metropolis, occupying two million square meters, is Qingdao's first film and TV industrial park. It has been funded by one of China's wealthiest men listed on Forbes China 2013, Wang Jianlin, who has taken the helm at the Dalian Wanda Group, a leading Chinese commercial property developer and Asia's largest cinema operator.

AFCI Locations Show, an exhibition for film and television production base, brings together hundreds of global film production VIPs, independent filmmakers, film industry veterans and the media, showcasing film production locations around the world and preferential policies and incentives offered by different countries.
