TIES THAT BIND starts today in Udine!
TIES THAT BIND’s second workshop takes place between April 25 – 29 in Udine (IT), in parallel to FOCUS ASIA, the Industry section of the Udine Far East Film Festival.
The rich programme of the plenary sessions for the TTB workshop is prepared in collaboration with FOCUS ASIA. It features a co-production case study of PLAN 75, which will premiere in Un Certain Regard in Cannes this year. The film is produced by TTB graduates Eiko-Mizuno Gray and Jason Gray (Loaded Films, JP), in co-production with TTB graduate Alemberg Ang (Daluyong Studios, PH) and Urban Factory (FR). Urban Distribution International handles sales. The case study will be moderated by Christophe Bruncher (TTB Head of Studies).
Another session will focus on Asian film distribution: post-pandemic, pre-what?, featuring speakers such as Todd Brown (XYZ Film, US), Silvia Simonutti (Wild Bunch, FR), Michael Werner (HK), and CAO LiuYing (Paralax Film, CN), moderated by Patrick Frater. The TTB participants and Focus Asia industry guests will also get an overview of the current European distribution landscape in a panel with Svend Jensen (Arthouse, DK), Christine Eloy (Europa Distribution), Eve Gabereau (Modern Films, UK) and Sabine Hofmann (Polyfilm Verleih, AT), moderated by Patrick Breski.
Furthermore, the TTB participants will have the opportunity to receive feedback on the marketing and distribution potential of their projects from top-notch Asian and European distributors such as Vincent Quek (Anticipate Pictures, SG), Kana Koido (The Klockworks, JP), Pamela Lingyan Bai (Beijing Hugoeast Media, CN), Alba Fouché (Eurozoom, FR) and TTB graduates Stephan Holl (Rapid Eye Movies, DE), Samantha Faccio (Tucker Film, IT) and Fernanda Renno (Fidalgo Film Distribution, NO).
The workshop will also provide further insight into private equity. TTB group leader Bianca Balbuena (Epicmedia Productions, PH) will share her expertise on how to work with equity investors. Individual meetings with TTB experts will be organised on topics such as Asian films and festivals with Roger Garcia (HK) and sales opportunities with Agathe Valentin (FR). TTB’s script consultants Clare Downs (UK) and Nayeem Mahbub (SE) will focus on developing their scripts.
All participants will have individual meetings with key industry professionals of Focus Asia, to foster new collaborations between European and Asian professionals.
