Eleven films head to South Korea
The 11 titles will be represented by nine companies from five EU members and their allocated grants will go towards producing promotional material and activities undertaken by the sales agent, as well as generating networking between local buyers and the films’ representatives.
EFP will have an industry office at Pusan’s inaugural Asian Film Market (October 15-18), which provides space for the display of promotional material and opportunities for business meetings.
FSS was founded in 2004 with the support of the MEDIA Programme in order to boost the presence of European films outside Europe. Pusan is the seventh date on the FSS agenda this year, after Sundance, Mar del Plata, Buenos Aires, Shangai, Toronto and Rio de Janeiro.
