Cheng Cheng Films has acquired North American rights to The Great Buddha +, part of AMP’s 10 Best Chinese Language Movies of 2017.

The film received the NETPAC award at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival and was a frontrunner with 10 nominations at the 54th Taiwan Golden Horse Film Awards, the Oscars of the Chinese-speaking world.

The distributor specialized in acclaimed Chinese language films has planned a limited theatrical release starting on 1/26/2018 followed by a VOD release in February. The acquisition deal was negotiated by Tony Yin from Cheng Cheng Films and Desmond Yang from Taiwan-based Mandarin Vision.
