2022 Asian Cinema Fund
The 2022 Asian Cinema Fund (ACF) calls for submissions in post-production, script development and documentary for Korean and Asian films.
ACF is committed to supporting more independent film productions and to setting up a stable production environment. ACF helps Asian feature films and documentaries establish their identities and position themselves as important parts of the film industry. During the Busan International Film Festival, ACF provides a forum for Asian film-makers to share their knowledge, leading to a pan-Asian network. Also, in cooperation with other international film festivals, ACF enables high quality Asian films and documentaries to be presented around the world.
General eligibility is for feature-length film projects by directors of Asian nationality and containing Asian elements. (Please check each fund's Submission Guidelines for more information.)
The fund has three categories.
This fund provides post-production services to Asian independent film-makers to complete their feature-length fiction films, shot in digital format.

- Post-production services at leading studios in South Korea
