Chinese New Year Films

新年快乐!

This is a list of films I compiled that either directly deal with Chinese New Year or that were released during Chinese New Year. I haven't seen many of these films, but they are pretty fascinating because a large amount have similar themes and styles that make them part of a Chinese New Year's genre. I can't really say much more because I still have a lot more to learn about this genre, but here are a few articles so that we can all start exploring this genre!
