JinZhen International Short Film association is quite influential on the global stage, proposed by Guan Er, president of JinZhen International Short Film association and organizing committee. With the generous support of 26 national leagues and other film festivals after the forum hosted in 2016, JinZhen International Short Festival has a very good beginning to attract the numerous contribution of certain famous film producers all over the world. At the same time, president Guan also stated that the film festival's great trends of development can not be separated from the courage of the people's Government of Han Cheng, as well as the enormous Oriental attraction of Han Cheng itself. However, there is still a giant gap between China's short films and the international community. Besides, our attention to short films is not given enough as well. Therefore we need to project a long-term development. In the final statement, Guan said, " A city's cultural development should start with a good seed, which is supposed to take roots and thrive prosperously to full foliage. Only in this way will peacocks and phoenix fly to rest here. Jinzhen Short Film Festival has a bright future, if it develops film competitions and other activities carefully、fairly and transparently under the guideline of the international moral rule.
