    In recent years, "Shanghai Audiovisual" has produced many high-quality projects and its filming services are well-known throughout the country. During this TV Festival, the Shanghai Municipal Bureau of Culture and Tourism and the Shanghai Municipal Radio and Television Bureau set up the "Shanghai Audiovisual" theme pavilion for the first time and held a high-quality promotion conference. Relying on the international platform of the Shanghai TV Festival, through project display, theme recommendation, creative description, service explanation and other forms, the brand charm of "Shanghai Audiovisual" was concentratedly displayed to all walks of life at home and abroad, presenting a new atmosphere for the development of Shanghai's film and television industry.

    In recent years, Shanghai audio-visual products represented by Shanghai-produced TV series have achieved good results in the domestic and international markets. This year, eight Shanghai-produced dramas, including "Flower", "Fireworks Family", "City in the City", "Cheng Huan Ji", and "Joy of Life Season 2", have premiered on CCTV's prime time, setting a record high. "Flower" has become a phenomenal cultural event, driving the offline "culture and tourism fever" and "Shanghainese fever" that continue to this day. "City in the City", which presents the "Chinese-style financial development path" in a panoramic way, has "double-broken" popularity and reputation, achieving a "hard-core" breakthrough in realistic themes. Urban themes "Cheng Huan Ji" and "Don't Be Moved by Me", the fairy-tale drama "Traveling with the Phoenix", and the ancient costume legend "Joy of Life Season 2" have caused heated discussions. In particular, "New Life" and other dramas have been broadcast simultaneously on international mainstream platforms such as Disney+ and Netflix, and have been welcomed by audiences on both sides of the Taiwan Strait. Shanghai film and television companies use excellent cultural products to represent the country in cultural industry competition and participate in global civilization exchanges and mutual learning.

    In the coming period, the Shanghai Municipal Bureau of Culture and Tourism and the Shanghai Municipal Radio and Television Bureau will further promote the creation of "Shanghai-produced dramas" from the following three aspects: First, comprehensively enhance the international communication influence of "Shanghai-produced dramas". Vigorously promote the "exporting" of "Shanghai audio-visual" products, strengthen cooperation with overseas media platforms and hub institutions, encourage and support more excellent TV series, online dramas, documentaries, cartoons, variety shows, etc. produced in Shanghai to land overseas, and show the credible, lovely and respectable image of China and the ever-changing urban style of Shanghai. Second, further build a "Shanghai-produced drama" city IP reservoir. Based on Shanghai's red culture, Shanghai culture, and Jiangnan culture, starting from the most resourceful and advantageous places in Shanghai, transform urban resources into the source of inspiration, spiritual connotation and visual expression for film and television creation, present the image of Shanghai city in a more complete, three-dimensional and fuller way, and make audio-visual works a window for the world to observe China. Third, continue to improve and strengthen the business service system of "Shanghai-produced dramas". In accordance with the international practices, market rules and artistic laws of the film and television industry, through the sustainable development methods such as improving policies, optimizing services, and allocating resources, we will achieve full-process services for key projects. In particular, relying on the "Shanghai Film and Television Production Service Platform" which was the first to be established in the country, convenient services are provided to all those coming to Shanghai for filming, and the combination of "effective market" and "effective government" is continuously strengthened. A good business environment is created for the construction of Shanghai's global film and television creation center, and contributions are made to Shanghai's construction of a best practice base for Xi Jinping's cultural thoughts.
