Oh Seung-uk’s “Gasoline” from Korea was the front runner Tuesday at the Asian Project Market (APM), part of the Busan Film Festival. It picked up the Lotte award of $8,900 (KRW10 million) and the MONEFF award that provides $20,000 worth of post-production services.

Bui Thac Chuyen’s “Glorious Ashes” (Vietnam) won the Busan award of $15,000. The Bright East Films award of $15,000 was won by Li Xiaofeng’s “Revenge” (China). Riri Riza’s “Humba Dreams” (Indonesia) won the CJ Entertainment award of $10,000.

Yoon Ga-eun’s “Sora” (Korea) won the KOCCA award of $8,850. Wissam Charaf’s “Dirty, Difficult, Dangerous” won the Arte International prize of $7,000. Min Bahadur Bham’s “A Year of Cold” (Nepal/France/Germany) won the Sorfund award which is an invitation to the Norwegian South Film Fund’s pitching forum, including flights.

The New Creator awards for book to film pitching went to Lee Jung Yuen’s “The Untouchables” while the E-IP pitching went to Lee Soo-a’s “Madam Mystery”. Both awards are $8,850 each.

Now in its 20th year, the APM this year organized some 645 meetings between film makers, financiers and distributors. The E-IP and book to film events claimed a further 381 meetings.

Earlier in the evening Thai producer Raymond Phathanavirangoon was awarded the inaugural Asian Producer of the Year prize by AFCNet, the organization representing film commissions around the region.
