New partnership and special offer - Asian Project Market | Busan International Film Festival

press release

Are you interested in CO-PRODUCING WITH ASIA?

We are happy to announce that thanks to the partnership between Asian Contents & Film Market, EAVE Ties That Bind and European Film Promotion, up to 4 EAVE European Alumni will be invited to join the 26th Asian Project Market in the framework of the Asian Contents & Film Market (ACFM) of the Busan International Film Festival.

The invitations will be granted only to delegates looking to contribute to the selected projects of APM & Busan Story Market. These participants should be looking for new Asian film projects or original IPs to co-produce or co-finance and should not mainly aim to present their own projects in Busan.

Each producer will be able to scout the best new Asian projects in development at the APM, network with more than 2,000 film professionals from all over the world and attend festival screenings. The invitation by Asian Project Market covers 4 hotel nights (Oct. 7-11) plus a discounted accreditation for 150 US$.

The Asian Project Market (APM, October 7- 10) is a co-production platform that offers filmmakers of official APM projects the opportunity to meet international leading film professionals including financiers, co-producers, or sales agents. In 2022, 29 projects were presented in more than 705 scheduled meetings This year, APM will introduce 30 official projects – [See Full List of APM 2023].

Established in 2006, Asian Contents & Film Market (Oct. 7 – 10) serves as a total film market covering all stages of film industry from pre-production to film sales. Since 2022, ACFM has presented Busan Story Market as a marketplace for film and audiovisual adaptation of original IP ranging from literary books to webtoons, web novels, story, and more. This year, Busan Story Market will introduce about 60 original IPs as an official selection with powerful Korean and Asian IP holders.

During the four days of the APM, Asian Contents & Film Market and Busan Story Market, the invited EAVE producers will be able to join a programme curated by EAVE Ties That Bind including a series of plenary sessions and networking activities.

Through a special Ties That Bind booth, we will provide a hub for business meetings exclusively dedicated to the invited producers, who are actively looking for co-producing and co-financing partners from Asia.

On top of this, we offer a tailor-made programme of round tables involving international key decision makers attending the Asian Contents & Film Market.

If you are interested, please send your CV and statement of goal & purpose of your attendance in APM and Busan to before August 26th.
