Sun Entertainment Culture Actively Expands Its Business Foothold Preparing for the Recovery of the Entertainment Industry
Suncity Group has always been committed to promoting the development of the entertainment and cultural industries, and has been expanding its entertainment-related businesses through Sun Entertainment Culture, as the Group actively supports local film, television, entertainment and arts-related projects in Macao and the Mainland. Sun Entertainment Culture mainly engages in the production and distribution of films, as well as the organisation and planning of large-scale concerts. Equipped with professional knowledge and rich experiences, the Group strives to deliver to audience quality entertainment.
The impact brought by the pandemic has made 2020 a difficult year for the entertainment industry. Despite all the challenges, Sun Entertainment Culture carried on with its work and is actively preparing for a full recovery this year. Currently, the company is engaging in the planning and productions of a number of films, including the film projects “SPL III”, “Hermit Within Time” and “Pacify” started in 2020, supporting new actors and directors in their bold endeavours to bring audiences novelty with innovative themes.
