Shanghai kicked off its annual film festival Saturday, a nine-day event with a heavy emphasis on Chinese cinema and a sprinkling of Hollywood stars promoting their latest works.Festival organizers picked a Chinese movie, the 1965 production "Stage Sisters" about two Chinese opera artists, as the opening film while a major tribute will celebrate China's "Fifth Generation" of filmmakers from the 1980s, including director Zhang Yimou.Chinese state media has recently criticized big-budget action films in an indirect swipe at foreign movies.Foreign films entering China come under an annual quota of just 34 annually and face censorship by cultural authorities who excise content deemed politically sensitive or obscene.
