Director Danny Boyle urges freedom for Chinese filmmakers


British director Danny Boyle championed the shedding of an "imperialist" mentality when filming abroad and gently urged freedom for movie-making peers in China during a panel discussion at the Shanghai International Film Festival.

The Oscar-winning filmmaker, whose recent hitSlumdog Millionaire has made more than $350 million US worldwide, is serving as jury president for the 12th annual edition of the Chinese film festival.

Taking part in a discussion in a Shanghai hotel ballroom on Thursday, Boyle made a plea for Chinese filmmakers to be given freedom to pursue their art.
