Canada will host the first Canada-China International Film Festival in Montreal in September.

China generated 44 billion yuan, or almost 6.8 billion U.S. dollars, in box office revenue in 2015, making it a tempting market for film makers around the world.

Song Miao, executive director of the festival's organizing committee, says Chinese movie producers are becoming more skilled in striking a balance between storytelling and technology.

Another highlight of the event will be 'female themes in films.' Song says films sometimes only focus on negative stereotypes, so she would like to shed a more positive light.

The festival is scheduled for Sept. 16-19.
