Established in 2006, marking its 14th edition this year, the Asian Film Market continues to serve as a trading zone covering all stages of film industry from investment, production, film and original copyright sales, and distribution to post-production. This year, in particular, the Asian Film Market takes a new leap to extend its business boundaries into broadcasting industry fields. It’s a B2B event where an admission to the main venue and the Market events are open to industry professionals, those who hold Market badges or a Day Pass issued by the Asian Film Market. Various events such as the Asian Project Market (APM), Entertainment Intellectual Property Market (E-IP Market), and the Asia Contents Awards will be held for this year’s Asian Film Market.

The number of pre-registered participants exceeded last year’s number by approximately 7%, amounting to 1,436 industry professionals. The number is expected to increase with the on-site sales. The Market screening presents 62 screenings of 37 companies from 11 countries. A total of 17 films are official selections at the 24th Busan International Film Festival and 47 films are market premieres.
