The documentary "Papa Rainbow" features six Chinese fathers who talk openly and freely about their experiences with their LGBT children. Popo Fan is a queer independent filmmaker and curator. Born in 1985, he graduated from the Beijing Film Academy.

In 2011, he received the Prism Prize of the 22nd Hong Kong Lesbian and Gay Film Festival, and thus became the youngest winner of this prize so far.
