Youth Matters
An invitation to the movies:
China Week 2013
Everyone enjoys a good film! While entertaining, films can also educate, stimulate and excite. The Federation, to encourage young people to discover more about Chinese history and culture, has arranged for a series of films to be shown during China Week 2013, from 3-9 July.

These films represent the spectrum of Chinese history, told through stories of tragedy and oppression, traditional arts and family optimism. They all reflect the values that make China what it is today.

We encourage all our friends and partners to come and join us during China Week 2013, and watch some truly special films.

See Thank you partners below for more information about China Week.
