Another emotionally-charged short-film shot on an iPhone. This year's pull at the heartstrings,
directed by Venice Film Festival Golden-Lion winner Jia Zhangke, is inspired by the insight that the spirit of Chinese New
Year doesn't end when people leave their hometowns to return to work or study in the cities. The parcels that everyone struggles
back with - on buses, trains, and boats - are not just packed with their favourite foods, but also with the love of their
What could spoil the perfect family Chinese New Year get-together... a spilt bottle of
Coca-Cola of course. Worry not, there's someone at the table whose Ninja-like skills save the day, and in so doing he gets
a chance to shine (aided by Coca-Cola's magical clay dolls of course).
The magical clay
dolls also have a hand in painting the town red. Making the most of its auspicious red packaging, Coca-Cola lit up the night-time
cityscape of Qingdao, in Shandong province.

That's right, in the Year of the Pig, Peppa Pig is on
her way to China. Peppa Celebrates Chinese New Year –a full-length feature film no less – will launch on 5th February, Chinese New Year's Day. This big-production
promo tells the story of a doting grandparent who hears from his grandchild that he wants a "Peppa" for Chinese
New Year. Grandad has no idea what a Peppa is of course, but that's not going to stop him giving his grandson what he wants.
Not everyone can make it back home for the Chinese New
Year... But, no matter where in the world (or beyond) people have to be, family-favourite foods and drink will always
provide an emotional-connection.

Bringing a new boyfriend back home for Chinese
New Year is made harder when Dad suspects that he's only there for a free meal. Rather than telling the chap what to
do with his rice, the insulted boyfriend decides to prove him wrong. Fast forward to the opening of the aspiring son-on-law's
new business and a chance to shine at the follow-up Chinese New Year's dinner. But will face be saved, or be as red as the
lobsters he so wants to buy?

is the first time they've been away from home during the Chinese New Year. Rather than being sad, they are all excited by
their new independence, and relieved to have escaped all the eating and tradition associated with the festival. Then one
of the students finds a letter from the other's mum...
