Far East In Progress 2020

Far East in Progress is the only exclusive work in progress section for Asian films in Europe.
The selection committee headed by Marie-Pierre Valle (WILD BUNCH) has selected 7 titles (6 upcoming features and 1 short film) looking for festival premiere and international distribution. All selected teams had the chance to present their works and screen max 10′ of their films to a large panel of international sales agents, festival programmers and buyers from both Europe and Asia. 

All Far East in Progress selected teams took part in a public intro session and had the chance to informally introduce themselves and their films in a real time event. Right after this short introduction we shared the selected A/V materials with all confirmed sales, festival programmers and buyers.
All Focus Asia attendees had the opportunity to request one-to-one meetings with the FAR EAST IN PROGRESS selected projects through our digital platform.
