APM names 27 for 2016

The Asian Project Market, run alongside the Busan International Film Festival, has selected 27 projects for its 2016 edition. The selections come from 16 countries.

The event looks further to the west of Asia than it has in recent years, with the fairly rare sight of selections for projects from Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan. The line-up also features new projects from old friends auch as Shawkat Amin Korki, who won Busan’s New Currents Award in 2009 with Kick Off, Aylan Kurdi and brings Stone Land to APM.

It seems diversity has even become a thing in Korea, with organisers noting an increase in the number of submissions from female directors and/or producers. Four of the six Korean projects selected have female directors or producers. There’s less female participation in the international selections, which includes producer Lorna Tee (with Indonesian director Edwin (Postcards from the Zoo) and Thai filmmaker Pimpaka Towira, whose The Island Funeral (pictured, top) was a winner in Tokyo last year.

The Asian Project Market will run 9 – 11 October. The Busan International Film Festival will run 6 – 15 October. The projects selected for APM are:
