Focus Asia launches call for its 2021 hybrid edition!

press release




After a very successful 2020 online edition, FOCUS ASIA 2021, one of the leading markets exclusively dedicated to film professionals from Europe and Asia, will take place in a hybrid version in June 16-18, 2021 both in Udine (Italy) and in the ‘Far East digital space’. The industry section of the Far East Film Festival will bring together both physically and virtually over 200 film professionals from all over the world, confirming a rich programme featuring the project market dedicated to films in development and a brand-new initiative to bridge even more Europe and Asia.


The ALL GENRES PROJECT MARKET will select high-quality projects already in financing stage from Europe, Asia and rest of the world; the main goal is to attract films in advanced development phase with at least 15-30% of the budget in place so to enable selected teams to find the most suitable co-production and financing partners through a series of tailor-made individual meetings; the deadline for submissions is April 20, 2021 and you can find the call for entries at the following link:


The first edition of ASIAN GATES will consist in a cycle of masterclasses, lectures and case studies targeting European film professionals keen to explore more in detail the financing and distribution opportunities offered by the Asian market; the programme will be planned and developed in close partnership with EAVE Ties That Bind.


In the coming weeks we will reveal the complete programme, all confirmed decision makers and we will open the registration campaign to attend the market. Producers and film professionals from all over the world are welcome to join us for this exciting hybrid edition of FOCUS ASIA 2021!
