Focus Asia 2021

FOCUS ASIA launches the 2021 edition!

After a very successful 2020 online edition, the Far East Film Festival launches FOCUS ASIA 2021, one of the leading markets exclusively dedicated to film professionals from Asia and Europe keen to strength their industry and artistic connections. 

FOCUS ASIA 2021 will take place in a hybrid version in June 30-July 2, 2021, bringing together both physically and virtually over 200 film professionals from Asia and Europe, confirming the two main sections dedicated to films in development and post-production, and launching a brand-new initiative to bridge even more Europe and Asia:

The special platform dedicated to upcoming high-quality feature films in development with co-production or co-financing potential either with Europe or Asia

Besides the project market and the work in progress section, Focus Asia 2021 launches the first edition of the SECOND-HAND FILM MARKET, a brand-new section designed to showcase a fine selection of restored hits from the recent past ready to be released in the near future.

Among this year's innovations, the ASIAN GATES section is certainly worthy of mention: a programme of masterclasses, conferences and case studies aimed at European film professionals who want to deepen their knowledge of the opportunities offered by the Asian market.

The programme will also feature a series of lectures, case studies, one to one meetings and networking activities to bring closer all our Asian and European participants.



Focus Asia is organized by Centro Espressioni Cinematografiche with the collaboration of the Friuli Venezia Giulia Audiovisual Fund and with the support of MiC. It is developed in collaboration with the workshop Ties That Bind and is promoted in association with Eave, European Film Promotion, HAF - Hong Kong, and Taipei Golden Horse Film Project Promotion.
Far East in Progress is supported by 108 media.
