We had an “A Tale of Two Cities” this time. Documentaries from more than 30 countries and regions participated in online and offline activities held in the two places. There were two forums and the opening ceremony held in Beijing. As for the film screening, forum, closing ceremony and award giving ceremony, were held in Paris.
