Creative industries are emerging as key components of the global economic and development agenda. These industries have demonstrated the ability to employ culture to provide insights into and solutions for the pressing social and economic challenges of our times. Adequately nurtured, creative industries are capable of fostering innovation as well as stimulating sustainable human-centred development.

The Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, the Netherlands and Het Nieuwe Instituut, presents a new publication comprising 36 good practices in the creative industries across Asia and Europe. The compilation showcases examples of policy and practice that may serve as inspiration for networking, collaboration and policy making. The mapping covers the four areas which will be addressed at the upcoming 6th Culture Ministers’ Meeting of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) in October 2014 in Rotterdam, namely creative skills, creative entrepreneurs, creative cities: sustainability, and creative cities: quality of life.

The publication was launched on the occasion of the first Senior Officials Meeting of the 6th ASEM Culture Ministers’ Meeting on 20 June 2014.

The 2014 edition of the Film Producers Workshop Ties That Bind took place in Udine, Italy on 29 April to 7 May, along the  16th Far East Film Festival. Justin Deimen from Singapore, was one of the 10 selected producers from Asia and Europe that participated in this year’s edition.

Co-organised between the festival,  The Asia-Europe Foundation’s (ASEF) Creative Encounters programme, European Audiovisual Entrepreneurs (EAVE), the Friuli Venezia Giulia Audiovisual Fund, and the Asian Project Market, Ties That Bind brings together a selected group of creative producers from around Asia (5 producers) and Europe (5 producers) to discuss projects that they have in development as well as to facilitate cultural exchanges in the film and television sectors of their respective regions.  The second and final leg of the workshop will take place during the Busan International Film Festival / Asian Project Market in October 2014.

Having been one of the Asian participants this year from Singapore, I was in pole position to experience and participate in the programme that has had great success in recent years in bringing together and improving unique projects with co-producing potential from Asia and Europe by placing them under the creative and financing microscope of experts from the 2 continents.  After being involved in film co-productions around the Southeast Asian region, the European leg of the workshop proved to be a wonderful eye-opener and a fantastic networking opportunity.

 

The Producers

The producers chosen for the workshop were from varied backgrounds from Asia, we had producers from the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, China, and Japan. From the European contingent, there were representatives from Belgium, France, The Netherlands, and Poland.  Their passion for their projects, professional achievements, personal integrity and character set the bar high for the workshop.

As an executive committee members of the recently launched Southeast Asian Audio-Visual Association (SAAVA), I was excited to learn that 3 out of the 5 Asian projects and 2 of the European projects were to be set in Southeast Asia. This underscored the storytelling potential and producing possibilities within this region as well as the need for strong inter-cultural foundations to be established between international content partners.

Each producer arrived with a feature film project, each at various stages of development and financing. Some were in the advanced stages of financing, while others were perfecting and putting together the right story that they wanted to tell. The notion of truly knowing the story and theme we were putting together became one of the most cohering points of references during the course of the week.

The Workshop and its Lessons

 

The workshops were guided by Christophe Bruncher (left), the programme’s Head of Studies and Group Leader, Élise Jalladeau.

The workshops were guided by Christophe Bruncher (left), the programme’s Head of Studies and Group Leader, Élise Jalladeau.

The workshop in Udine was comprised of 3 main components – a group discussion, plenaries, and meetings. The group work was facilitated by Elise Jalladeau (EAVE) in a round-table format consisting of intense 3-hour blocks of friendly criticism, creative brainstorming, and exchanging of experiences. As each project was different, every approach had to be unique and deliberate based on the quality of the story and script, the location of the production and the financing elements attached.

With the various experiences of the profiles gathered together, the workshop head Christopher succinctly mentioned early on that we were chosen based on who we are and where we were going as opposed to only the strength of our project. Through the group work, it became apparent that our individual work and knowledge in different regions, enabled us to exchange practical information to get our projects funded. We looked at the various tax incentives and grants available for producers around the world, and how we can best fit these puzzle pieces together to form our financing structure – this proved why the international format of this workshop demonstrated its true value.

In between the group discussions, we had sessions with industry experts based in Europe and Asia who presented the various states of play in the creative industries from festival planning, distribution, and script development. We also had fantastic self-improvement sessions that involved pitching and marketing. The follow-ups to these sessions included one-on-one meetings (coordinated by the Tanika Sajatovic from EAVE) with the experts to see how their respective fields of interest could benefit our individual projects. On the whole, this networking opportunity was beneficial for participants who knew what they wanted and what they could possibly gain from these esteemed guests.

Aside from these coordinated meetings, participants and experts were also grouped together for the various events and dinners around the city. Alessandro Gropplero and his team were instrumental in planning and putting together the well-executed schedules and events throughout any downtime we had. Through these instances of personal contact, a strong networking and learning opportunity allowed genuine and meaningful relationships to strengthen for the long run.

 

The Perspectives

One of the most interesting takeaways from these discussions and meetings was how differently producers on both sides of the Caspian Sea perceive sources of financing. As evidenced by the projects, there is a growing sense that European producers want to set more culturally inventive stories shot in Asia, which would allow it to be more cost-effective as well. However, government and arts funding in the continent aside from Malaysia, Singapore, Japan, and Korea is scarce. Most film investments here deal with equity, and very little else including pre-sales. This presents a bit of a conundrum to our European counterparts where federal, state, and regional funding plays a large part in their endeavours and strategies of content producing.

On the Asian side of the aisle, it became apparent that aside from international development grants like the World Cinema Fund and the Hubert Bals Fund, there’s little experience that Asian producers have in terms of applying for soft money, and it does not constitute a significant portion of their financing plan. It’s a cash business here, where producers deal with less paperwork (a common refrain from the Europeans) and more equity. From the Singaporean and Malaysian standpoint, the tax incentives offered by these neighbouring nations are still arbitrary, nascent and continue to be developed. These film rebates will need more industry consultations to be disseminated fairly and purposefully or else it will become a limited bureaucratic exercise.

All these factors contribute to the dearth of true co-productions between these regions, as most European production expeditions into Asia are led creatively by European producers who are financed with cheaper production costs within Asia. Creative producers in Asia have more to offer than mere access to more cost-effective labour but also the desire and ability to package projects with our stories and private financing together with our European counterparts’ experience with their own countries’ incentives.

Most of Asia has private money flowing through the creative industries but no real system of checks and balances, or a sophisticated film financing ecosystem. The only real way for Asian producers to have an equal footing in a co-production relationship is if there is more support towards culture and the audio-visual arts either within each country or through inter-governmental associations, just as how EAVE as grown into a vital cultural establishment through the support of the European Union and the buy-ins from its member states. This is something creative producers in the Asian region have to work towards constituting, here cultural exchanges like Ties That Bind can help in this regard.

Ties that Bind is one of the project selected through the ASEF’s Creative Encounters programme in 2013-14. Creative Encounters is based on an annual open call for proposals and a selection process targeting innovative projects, which gather artists, performers, producers and cultural practitioners from Asia and Europe.

Submissions for the Fourth Edition (2014-2015) are now open until July 15, 2014.

Participants and speakers of the Inaugural Meeting of the Asia-Australia-Europe Creative Residency Network

 

The inaugural meeting of the Asia‐Australia‐Europe Creative Residency Network is supported by the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) as one of the 3 projects selected this year through ASEF Creative Networks programme. The event began on 9 May with a meeting on “Mapping and Assessment” that will continue the development of Res Artis’ assessment protocols for the art sector.

What is already known of mapping residencies, and by whom in Australia, Asia and Europe? What is the best way of mapping arts residencies and the value? The discussions will look at cultural factors in Asia, Europe and Australia to consider in evaluating the success of an arts residency programme.

The second meeting organised by the European network On-The-Move and Res Artis took place on 12 May. Funders and stakeholders from Europe, Asia and Australia were invited to brainstorm on the issue of access and reciprocity in relation to cultural mobility

Funding models for mobility today face a lot of challenges – old and new. Some funding bodies connect diverse regions of the world, while others have a regional focus. Despite the current models – access to local, national and international stakeholders and culturally sensitive expertise is crucial. This brainstorming meeting between key mobility funders and stakeholders  addressed questions such as what issues do funding bodies face when supporting mobility and how new partnerships are required to adapt current funding models to address established needs.

This meeting is also a continuation of the discussions started in 2013 in Prague with the meeting of over 50 Asian and European cultural mobility funders and other stakeholders (co-organised with the support of the Asia-Europe Creative Encounters programme).

ASEF’s project manager Valentina Riccardi participated in the sessions and presented ASEF’s role as a funder of cultural mobility namely through the Asia-Europe Creative Encounters and ASEF Creative Networks programmes. She also announced the upcoming 3rd Edition of the Funding opportunities for international cultural exchange in Asia to be published in August on culture360.asef.org.
