25 Asian film projects unveiled at Rotterdam for co-ventures

The Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) unveiled details of 25 Asian film productions selected for the Hong Kong - Asia Film Financing Forum (HAF) to international partners at Rotterdam yesterday (January 31, 2006)

HAF is a platform provided by the HKTDC and the Hong Kong, Kowloon & New Territories Motion Picture Association Ltd. (MPIA) that brings together Asian filmmakers and international financiers with a mission to facilitate co-productions and co-ventures.

Representatives of HAF were in Rotterdam also to offer their compliments to CineMart of the International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR), a fellow co-production market and international partner of HAF.

Both CineMart and HAF promote innovative filmmaking by helping talented filmmakers source financing and other support to get their ideas onto the big screen.

The 25 projects selected for HAF 2006 (see attached) are from Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Chinese mainland, Thailand and Iran.

HAF will take place in Hong Kong from 20 - 22 March 2006 in conjunction with FILMART, Asia's leading entertainment market for the film, television and digital entertainment industries.

The Hubert Bals Fund of the IFFR also announced that it would sponsor the Hubert Bals Fund Award at HAF 2006, by providing one project from a developing country with a prize of 10,000 Euros.

HAF's Project Director and TDC Assistant Executive Director Raymond Yip said, "CineMart has set the stage in demonstrating what can be achieved following 23 years of hard work and dedication. We would like to do the same for Asian filmmakers with HAF, and will continue to collaborate with our international partners in creating opportunities for talented filmmakers to secure funding and support in order to get their projects completed."
