Focus Asia 2021

FOCUS ASIA launches the 2021 edition!
Submissions for the All Genres Project Market 
and Far East in Progress are now open!


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 16-18, 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 ALL GENRES PROJECT MARKET will select high-quality projects already in financing stage; the main goal is to attract films in advanced development phase with at least 15-30% of the budget in place so to enable selected teams to find the most suitable co-production and financing partners through a series of tailor-made individual meetings; the deadline for submissions is April 20, 2021 and you can find the call for entries at the following link

For the second consecutive year FAR EAST IN PROGRESS will present upcoming Asian feature films in post-production looking for festival premiere and international distribution; selected teams will have the chance to screen max 10′ of their films to a large panel of international sales agents, festival programmers and buyers from both Europe and Asia; the deadline for submissions is April 30, 2021 and you can find the call for entries at the following link
The first edition of ASIAN GATES will consist in a cycle of masterclasses, lectures and case studies targeting European film professionals keen to explore more in detail the financing and distribution opportunities offered by the Asian market; the programme will be planned and developed in close partnership with EAVE Ties That Bind

In the coming weeks we will reveal the complete programme, all confirmed decision makers and we will open the registration campaign to attend the market. Producers and film professionals from all over the world are welcome to join us for this exciting hybrid edition of FOCUS ASIA 2021!
