Beijing Boutique Hotel Provides Tools To Create Short Films

BEIJING The Opposite House’s new Suitcase Cinema package provides guests with use of a Canon camcorder and an iMac, inviting them to shoot and edit their own short film. The package also includes breakfast for two and the use of a bicycle, map and a limited-edition “Short Stays” DVD.

The 99-key Opposite House, designed by Kengo Kuma and operated by Hong Kong-based Swire Hotels, offers Suitcase Cinema on the heels of the launch of “Short Stays,” a film series directed by three young and talented Chinese auteurs that was recorded at the hotel. Suitcase Cinema invites guests to build on the Short Stays model.

The package costs RMB2,800 (US$414) per night.
