Busan and Venice to support Asian Micro Budget Film
The Biennale College Cinema, in its second edition, is a unique initiative to support the development and production of micro budget audio visual works. It seeks teams that should consist of emerging director at his/her debut or second film and a producer who has completed at least 3 audiovisual products distributed and/or presented at festivals. The Biennale College Cinema accepts applications until Wednesday, July 10.
Twelve micro-budget projects will be selected to participate in a 10-day workshop in October 2013. Following the completion of the workshop, 3 projects will be selected to participate in a subsequent workshop. The 3 successful films will receive a €150,000 production award and will be presented at the 2014 Venice Film Festival. The 3 projects from 2012 have been completed and are waiting to premiere at the 2013 Venice Film Festival this August.
