Film and television music is a new subject. As an important means to enhance the soft power of national culture, as emphasized in the Sixth Plenary Session of the Seventeenth Central Committee, the originality is particularly important for Chinese films to go global.

 

Inspired by the strategy of “cultural power”proposed at the Sixth Plenary Session of the Seventeenth Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party, and after careful consideration, the School of Arts and Communication of Beijing Normal University formally established the China Film and Television Music Center of BNU in December 2012.

Its purpose is: through building a research platform for film and television music, to systematically research, organize and preserve the history of Chinese film and television music; to devote itself to the study of film and television music theory and film and television music works, especially contemporary Chinese film and television music works; to compile and produce theoretical works on film and television music, and to provide theoretical support for future Chinese film and television music creation and the development of film and television music disciplines.

It has successfully held two sessions of China International Film and Television Music Forum, invited famous foreign film and television music experts to teach in China, and established a cooperative relationship with the Royal Conservatory of Music and Birmingham Conservatory of Music.

 

The establishment of the center is a very forward-looking decision. First of all, we have a strong advantage in those areas compare to other fellow schools. Secondly, at a deeper level, the establishment of the center can become a testing ground for interdisciplinary cooperation, integrating resources within the School of Arts and Communication, allowing students to develop their professional skills that covers the entire production process of film and television both academically and practically.  

 

The establishment of the Film and Television Music Center can be a breakthrough for further interdisciplinary cooperation of the School of Art and Communication of Beijing Normal University, and pave a way for the new direction for creative arts disciplines.
