Asian Project Market opens doors

The Asian Project Market (APM) project is now accepting online registration for 2015 with opportunities for investment and co-production in big-scale commercial films to low-budget independent films.


The Asian Project Market supports both rookie and master directors of various Asian and international features by introducing and arranging meetings with investors, producers, and distributors. Over the past 17 years, APM has selected 442 films, of which approximately 200 have been completed.

APM has a good hit rate for arthouse titles, with selected projects going on to major festivals, including 2015 selections Chang Tso Chi’s Thanatos, Drunk playing in the Berlinale’s Panorama programme, and Naomi Kawase’s AN named in next month’s Un Certain Regard line-up in Cannes.

Alongside local arthouse projects, there’s a stronger stream of more commercial titles among the Korean projects selected for APM, including BONG Joon-ho’s Snowpiercer and RYOO Seung-Wan’s The Berlin File.

The APM submission deadline is 15 June. APM runs 4 – 6 October, alongside the Busan International Film Festival (BIFF, 1 – 10 October) and Asian Film Market (AFM, 3 – 6 October)
