The best free events in Beijing this September

The best things to do when you're on a budget

Hidden Figures
We've compiled a monster lineup of the best free events going on in Beijing every month because we get it – you want to do cool stuff in the capital, but payday is (often) way too far away. This September, China Women's Film Festival kicks off, featuring a whole slew of female-empowering films from around the world. The best part is, most of the screenings are free(!), so make sure you take a look at all the film screenings listed down below - it's a real doozy.

We also update this page regularly as events are announced, so keep checking back!
