Project Description

Spring Festival is the most important date on the calendar in China, when families separated by work and life necessities reunite, traditionally in the town where the children grew up. Airbnb China’s Chinese New Year film is a touching animation demonstrating how the brand’s properties can become homes away from home at a time of year when young Chinese are finding it increasingly difficult to return to their family hometowns.

Titled “Fu”, the three-and-a-half minute 3D animation tells the story of Jia Jia, a young nurse whose pursuit of her career dreams in the big city prevent her from returning to her hometown for Chinese New year, much to the disappointment of herself and her parents. Fortunately, Airbnb’s platform is on-hand to enable a unique solution.
