Cannes Brief

The Pusan festival, which unspools Oct. 12-20, is moving ahead with plans for the debut sesh of its Asian Film Market.

New mart, which runs Oct. 15-18, expects to host some 150 sales company booths spread across the top six floors of the Grand Hotel in city’s Haeundae district. Companies that this week committed to attend include Arclight Films, Sahamongkolfilm Intl., HanWay Films, Hong Kong’s Focus Films and Three Dots/Serenity Intl.
