TORONTO, Sept. 9 (Xinhua) -- Famed martial artist and Kung Fu master Jackie Chan is now in town for the Toronto International Film Festival's (TIFF) inaugural Asian Film Summit to break down barriers and greet his loyal fans.
Known for redefining martial arts flicks with his daring, unusual and comedic stunts, Chan arrived on the red carpet in style with four gorgeous ladies by his side. Chan is doing double duty at the 37th TIFF, both to promote East-West collaborations and his upcoming film.
He'll be the guest of honour at the film summit to bridge the gap of collaborations between the East and the West.
Chan talked about the importance of this summit on the red carpet.
"I think we need to have this summit, I hope that more westerners will come to China, more western producers, directors come to China, and collaborate on films. Films on Chinese subjects that can be introduced into foreign countries," he said. "I believe this will help the western society better understand the Chinese culture."
The summit on Monday will feature a series of working sessions on ways to tackle topics that include ways to promote Asian talent, how to handle finances, eliminating commercial borders and more.
After spending a full day on the summit, Chan is also here to see his loyal fans. In TIFF's special In Conversation with Jackie Chan, he discusses the full range of his career onstage.
"They released a lot of films for my fans to see and for me to come and talk to over one thousand fans in person," he said. "It's given me the opportunity to speak to international fans, to listen to their opinions and meet them. It'll also be very helpful for me in my film career in the future."
As the director, writer and actor of his new action-packed film, Chan's also giving his fans a glimpse of his new 101st movie onstage.
The film, set to premiere Dec. 12 this year, will be his last major action role. But that doesn't mean he's lost any of his moves.
Chan reassures everyone, he's not retiring.
"It's the last major action film, but I'm still going to be filming more, don't worry," he said.
