Korea’s NAFF Genre Film Market Unveils Selection

Quentin Lee, Jo Jin Kyu, Lisa Takeba, Dev Benegal set to pitch projects.

SEOUL — Canadian indie Quentin Lee (“The People I’ve Slept With,” “White Frog”) will line up alongside leading Korean director Jo Jin Kyu (“Man on the Edge,” “My Wife is a Gangster”) to pitch their upcoming projects at the Network of Asian Fantastic Films (NAFF, July 20-23, 2014.)

Part of the Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival (PiFan), South Korea’s leading genre-oriented film fest, NAFF has selected 21 film-makers with partially-funded genre projects. They will be able to access financiers, co-producers and distributors through a series of one-on-one meetings, seminars and pitching events.

Lee and producer Karen Wong will attend with “The English Major,” while Jo and producer Ko Min-jae will present Jo’s thriller “The Shadow Zone.”

Other international film-makers selected include Yubari Grand Prix winner, Lisa Takeba with fantasy “Haruko’s Paranormal Laboratory,” while India’s Dev Benegal, recipient of the NAFF Award at Hong Kong’s Asia Film Financing Forum (HAF), will present “Dead End.” The Hong Kong-Singapore team of Lee Cheuk-Pan Ben and Flora Goh will pitch their crime thriller “Games of Suspects.”

Outstanding projects will receive cash awards and post-production support.
 
NAFF’s ‘It Project’ mart has been instrumental in the production of Korean hit “The Terror Live,” and helped launch “The King of Pigs” and “Azooma.” In the event’s 7-year existence some 29 projects have been completed and were either theatrically released or screened at festivals.

The PiFan festival, now in its 18th edition, runs July 17-27.
