Blogs/ New Community Engagement Initiatives

By CATHAYPLAY, published on 18 Feb 2024

We are committed to creating a unique space for sharing, exploring, and appreciating Chinese independent cinema. Your comments and feedback are invaluable treasures of our community, enriching our cultural landscape.

Update on Comment Function

After careful consideration, we have decided to suspend the comment feature on our website effective immediately. While previous comments will remain accessible, the ability to add new comments will no longer be available. We believe that directing discussions to broader platforms such as Douban and Letterboxd will allow more people to discover and understand these unique Chinese independent films, fostering deeper conversations and exchanges.

Expanding the Scope of Discussion

We encourage CathayPlay users to share your insights on films on Douban and Letterboxd, tagging your comments with #CathayPlay. This not only helps guide more film enthusiasts to these works but also contributes to the promotion and recognition of Chinese independent cinema.

Annual User Rewards Program

In gratitude for the participation and support of our community members, we will select the top 10 most influential commenters who use the CathayPlay tag on Douban and Letterboxd by the end of the year and present them with special gifts.

Additionally, the "Like" and "Dislike" features will remain available. We will also identify the top 10 films of the year based on your ratings and conduct a raffle among participants to show our appreciation for your enthusiastic engagement.

Looking Forward

We believe that these adjustments and new methods of interaction will further facilitate discussions about Chinese independent cinema, offering a richer viewing experience for everyone. We look forward to witnessing your unique perspectives on broader platforms and continue exploring the endless charm of Chinese independent cinema together on CathayPlay.

Thank you for your ongoing support and understanding of CathayPlay. Let us look forward to a brighter future for Chinese independent cinema!
