Most Shaohua couldn't keep it. Regardless of whether you or I miss it, 2019 is about to be a thing of the past at your own pace.
This year marks the 70th anniversary of the founding of New China and the fifth anniversary of the symposium on literary and art work. In March of spring, General Secretary Xi Jinping visited the members of the cultural and artistic circles and the social sciences who participated in the second session of the 13th National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference. He hoped that the majority of cultural and artistic workers and philosophy and social science workers would take on a new era of recording, a new era of writing, and a new era of singing. The mission of the times is the portrait of the times, the biography of the times, and the virtues of the times.
Like a spring breeze, encouraged by cultural and artistic workers.
This year, the 10th Mao Dun Literature Award was announced, and the winning works demonstrated the efforts and achievements of literary and artistic creation in recent years from the "plateau" to the "peak." Summary books such as "Selection of Excellent Literary Works for the 70th Anniversary of the Founding of the People's Republic of China" were published and published.
This year, the Liangzhu ancient city ruins were successfully applied for heritage, and the Chinese civilization of 5,000 years added another heavy evidence. The road to return—the "results" return to cultural relics at the 70th anniversary of the founding of the return of cultural relics to the founding of the People's Republic of China, the Beijing Metro "National Railway Special Train" takes passengers "crossing" 5000 years of history and civilization.
This year, "I and My Motherland" "harves" you and my laughter and tears. Behind the "broken circle" is "I" sharing glory with the motherland. The mainland box office's "reversal" reversed 60 billion yuan 24 days earlier than last year, bringing warmth to this winter.
Concentrate together, Bacon casts soul. Over the past year, the vast number of cultural and artistic workers have created a large number of outstanding works rooted in the people and the Acura era with the people as the center and the new era as their coordinates. The cultural and artistic undertakings have painted the most beautiful concentric circles of the times and the people.
"Group" efforts and intensive cultivation of the film and television industry
Relevant data shows that at 20:37 on December 6, the box office of Mainland China in 2019 reached 60 billion yuan in total, 24 days earlier than last year. The box office market "reversing the trend" boosted industry confidence. It is especially worth mentioning that, of the top ten box office films this year, eight are domestic films, accounting for up to 80% of the box office.
From the beginning of "Wandering Earth", it took only three days to stand out from the fierce Spring Festival stalls, becoming the first box office "black horse" in 2019, to "I have to live by me" the animated feature film "Nazi's Witch Child" "Ignite" the whole summer file, and then the three main theme films of "I and My Motherland", "China Captain" and "Climb" are jointly creating "the strongest National Day file in history". : Confidence is more important than gold.

The big screen "burns" and the small screen "fine".
On the evening of June 14, Ni Dahong won the Best Actor of the Magnolia Award in the 25th Shanghai TV Festival for her wonderful performance in "It's All Good", and the TV series "Dajiang Dahe" won the best Chinese TV series, best director, Best Supporting Actress, Best Screenplay (Adapted), Best Art and other 5 awards, became the biggest winner of the current Magnolia Award.
If we say that "Better All" broadcasted in the first half of the year and "Big Rivers and Rivers" broadcasted throughout the year represent the reality of the TV series is gradually becoming more refined, then in the second half of the year, "Great Turn", "Afar" "Glorious Times", "Pentium Age" and others seem to foreshadow that high-quality period dramas and industry dramas are becoming new "airports".
These outstanding realistic-themed dramas not only have rough sketches of the times, but also hand-drawn sketches of the lives of ordinary people today. They are screen mirrors of the changing times and social development. The return of realism has also become the most vivid bright color of the TV drama market in 2019, allowing people to re-see the unique charm and market value of realistic themes.
2019 is also a year of intensive cultural and acting variety shows.
As early as 2017, cultural variety shows such as "Chinese Poetry Congress", "Long Reader" and "National Treasure" became a "clear stream" of the variety show circle. After two years of hard work, TV people have continued to cultivate in the cultural field. The second season of a good book and the second season of national treasures have continued to build on the previous work. Focusing on telling Chinese stories, "China" pays tribute to traditional classics in the form of "drama + film + variety show" and excavates the true imprint and spiritual value behind it.
The impetuous wind of the film and television market has improved, and the discussion of good actor standards has resulted in a variety show of performances such as "commenting actors" and "dragon acting." Acting variety shows such as "Actor Please Get Into Place", "Actor's Character 2", "Acting School", "I'm the Actor's Peak Showdown" are suspected of "getting together", but at least through these shows, the audience saw the industry return to film and television The core value of the industry, the efforts and attempts to develop excellent newcomers.
Rooted in the People and Realism in the Age
Cultural change is about the world, and prosperity is about time.
In July this year, General Secretary Xi Jinping emphasized in his congratulatory letter to the 70th anniversary of the founding of the China Federation of Literary and Art Circles and the Chinese Writers Association that the vast number of writers and artists should record a new era, write a new era, and sing a new era, and strive to create a place worthy of the times, worthy of the people, Worthy of outstanding work of the nation.
In the Chinese literary world of 2019, realist creations that are rooted in the people and based on the times are still blowing.
Literary celebrity novels took the lead, and the 10th Mao Dun Literature Award was announced to further lead the way. The award-winning works such as Liang Xiaosheng's "The World" and Chen Yan's "The Protagonist" are soaked in the care of the times and the concern of the people by the realist creations, reflecting the literary creators' in-depth life, creative creation, and promoting the national spirit and the spirit of the times Active exploration.

The style of writing is important and silent in its moisturizing. Realist creation is not only commonplace offline, but online writers are also constantly broadening the creative field of realistic themes. In the past year, there has been less alchemy cultivation and monster upgrading in online literature, reflecting more social forms; less "dominant presidents" and "stupid white sweets", more attention to ordinary life ... more and more Internet Literary writers are gradually getting rid of the shackles of routine plots and model characters, injecting more realistic energy into their works, and shouldering greater responsibilities of the times.
This year, the publication and release of several heavy books that reflect the 70-year struggle of New China and the people have profoundly revealed the great history, brilliant achievements and valuable experience of New China in the past 70 years.
In August, the "Selection of Excellent Literary Works for the 70th Anniversary of the Founding of the People's Republic of China" was unveiled at the 26th Beijing International Book Fair, fully showing the literary achievements of the 70 years since the founding of New China.
In October, the "New China 70 Years and 70 Years of Novel Collection" series was published. With moving stories and touching images, we relived the passionate years that the party and people of all ethnic groups have gone through together.
In December, the largest collection of classic Chinese military literature classics since the founding of New China was launched. The 70-volume, 700 works outline the history of the development of Chinese military literature.
A series of books dedicated to the birth of New China, such as the "Chinese Character Story Collection" series, the "70 Years of Innovative Reporting" series, and other works that have given birth to New China ... one after another familiar stories, full of characters, take us back to 70 years The storm will be felt, and 70 years of vicissitudes have changed.
Only by standing in the present moment can we hear the tide of the times and the echo of history; close to the people can unite our hearts for the people's happiness, national development, and national rejuvenation. In the past year, the literary creation and book publishing undertakings have empowered every Chinese person with statues and empowerment, singing the main theme of society and boosting the spirit of spirit.
Connecting the world and approaching the mass cultural and cultural undertakings
2019 is the year when Chinese civilization once again "proved itself" to the world. In June, the 43rd Session of the World Heritage Committee (World Heritage Conference) of UNESCO passed the review and included the site of the Liangzhu Ancient City in the World Heritage List. The Chinese civilization of 5,000 years has been further recognized internationally.

If it is said that the further recognition of Chinese civilization in 5,000 years is the source of more confident culture, the construction of the Great Wall, the Grand Canal and the Long March National Cultural Park is an important manifestation of cultural confidence.
Not long ago, the General Office of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and the General Office of the State Council issued the "Construction Plan for the Construction of the Great Wall, the Grand Canal, and the Long March National Cultural Park." This is an important measure to promote the creative transformation of the outstanding traditional culture of China, inherit the revolutionary culture, and develop advanced culture. The lasting influence of Chinese excellent traditional culture, the powerful appeal of revolutionary culture, and the strong vitality of advanced socialist culture will continue to inspire and inspire every Chinese son and daughter to run and pursue their dreams.
2019 is also a year when the repatriation of lost cultural relics has achieved fruitful results.
In February, the United States handed over 361 (sets) of Chinese cultural relics and arts illegally smuggled into the United States and handed them over to the State Administration of Cultural Relics of China; in March, representatives of China and Italy exchanged certificates for the return of 796 artefacts lost in China; in September , China successfully pursued the loss of the bronze organ of the Japanese father Zeng Bok; in November, the donation ceremony of the bronze statue of the head of the Yuanmingyuan was held ... The loss of Chinese cultural relics overseas has closely affected the hearts of the Chinese children, and every time the lost cultural relics return, they are condensed With the hearts of the people, excited strength.

In September, the "Road to Reunification-The 70th Anniversary of the Return of the Lost Cultural Relics Exhibition in New China" opened at the National Museum. This is the first panoramic exhibition of the achievements of the repatriation of lost cultural relics in China. More than 600 returning cultural relics from 12 provinces and cities and 18 cultural and arts units outlined the magnificent picture of the lost cultural relics on their way home. The return of cultural relics sounded the drum of the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.
Civilizations communicate because of diversity, learn from each other because of exchanges, and develop because of each other. 2019 is a year when cultural exchanges and cultural connections between China and foreign countries are closer.
In May, the "Greater America and Asia-Asian Civilization Exhibition", which opened during the Asian Civilization Dialogue Conference, brought together more than 400 group cultural relics from 47 countries in Asia and the two ancient civilizations of Greece and Egypt. The number of participating countries and cultural relics is large. And the exquisiteness of the exhibits is unprecedented, and it composes a new movement of mutual learning between the United States and the United States.
The fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in France has frightened the world. On November 6, China and France reached an agreement on co-operation on the restoration of Notre Dame after the fire and the protection of terracotta warriors. Next year, Chinese experts will go to the site to participate in the restoration of Notre Dame. The cooperation between the two sides is not only of great significance to the two countries, but also a useful exploration and active demonstration of cultural relic protection and research and international cooperation and exchanges around the world.
2019 is also a year when the museum gets closer to the masses.
In November, the National Museum “moved” the 5,000-year-old splendid civilization into the subway. Some carriages of the “National Expo Special Line” of Beijing Metro Line 1 are decorated with artistic patterns and cultural relics from different historical periods, and each collection is accompanied by vivid interpretations. The “National Expo Special Train” galloped down Chang'an Street, and as the light flickered, it was like carrying passengers “traversing” 5000 years of history and civilization.
The more national, the more global; the closer to the masses, the more vibrant. In the new era, the cultural and cultural undertakings are more open and tolerant, and more "grounded." We have reasons to believe that the cultural and cultural undertakings will move towards the future with a more pragmatic and progressive attitude.
Literature and art is the mirror of the times and the spiritual food that nourishes the heart. Practice has proven time and again that only by adhering to the people-centered work orientation, deepening life, taking root in the people, and continuously strengthening the feet, eyesight, brainpower, and pen power can we create outstanding works that can stand the test of the times and the people. Telling Chinese stories well and telling stories of Chinese people is the direction that the majority of cultural and artistic workers will continue to work hard for now and for a long time to come. Culture is soft power, but it is also "hard core" because it cares about the times and the people.
