Southeast Asian Film Financing (SAFF) Project Market 2016 | call for submissions
ASEF is supporting through this year's edition of ASEF Creative Networks, the second edition of the Southeast Asian Film Financing (SAFF) Project Market 2016. Organised by ScreenSingapore, in partnership with the Southeast Asian Audio-Visual Association (SAAVA), SAFF is launching a Call for Submissions to invite promising feature-length projects to meet with a global network of media financiers, distributors, and collaborators who can bring these projects to fruition.
Due to its previous edition’s success, which saw an overwhelming 148 entries, SAFF Project Market 2016 will feature up to 15 projects, from 10 in its inaugural year. It will be held at Marina Bay Sands Singapore from 7-9 December 2016 which includes a financing conference and the prestigious Ties That Bind (TTB) cross-cultural Europe/Asia co-producing workshop.
Continuing the end-goal of connecting producers and their promising in-development fiction and non-fiction feature-length projects with commissioners, investors, and co-production partners, this initiative is in line with SAAVA’s mandate to represent regional media investment and facilitate best practices in content producing, financing and distribution in order to promote Southeast Asian creative industries internationally through its members and partnerships.
The selection of the final 15 projects will be made by an esteemed panel of international film industry experts that will include:
Kathy Morgan – Principal of Kathy Morgan International (KMI) / Executive Producer of Academy Award-winning THE DANISH GIRL
Chan Gin Kai – Executive Producer of Silver Media Group / Chairman of the Southeast Asian Audio-Visual Association (SAAVA)
Kristina Trapp – CEO of European Audiovisual Entrepreneurs (EAVE)
Jeffrey Paine – Founding Partner of Golden Gate Ventures
Leonard Retel Helmrich – Two-Time Sundance / Three-Time IDFA winning Filmmaker
Submissions for Southeast Asian Film Financing Project Market will close on September 5, 2016.
