On June 22, 2017, Jackie Chan attended the 20th Shanghai International Film Festival: Jackie Chan Action Movie Week Gala Night at the Shanghai Oriental Arts Centre (SHOAC). Jackie especially invited members of the original Seven Little Fortunes to attend the event, including martial arts legends Sammo Hung Kam-Bo, Yuen Biao, Yuen Wah and Yuen Qiu. During the ceremony, a special MV of the Seven Little Fortunes and their master, Yu Jim-Yuen, was shown during the ceremony, bringing tears to viewers and the Yuen-Jia-Ban members.

The Jackie Chan Action Movie Week Gala Night is an awards ceremony honouring those who have made outstanding achievements and contributions to action movies. This year being the 3rd year of the Action Movie Week, Jackie Chan’s goal of keeping China’s say in the action movie circle has paid off with the establishment of the China Film Association Stuntmen Committee. As the president of the association, Jackie shared his thoughts on the reasons behind establishing a stuntmen association in China and described it as a “shelter” for stuntmen to turn to if they are injured or treated unfairly. Jackie also mentioned that the reason for establishing the association is for the younger generations. “I don’t need the help of these associations anymore. This is for the young ones. I started this up because of you”, Jackie explained on stage.
