Pic market debut set for Pusan

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.

Commercial offices will be supplemented by umbrella stands hosting smaller sellers and national delegations. Mart is also putting together a global alliance of non-commercial partners including European Film Promotion and Telefilm Canada.

Market, which is already set to absorb Pusan’s long-running PPP co-productions mart and the BIFCOM locations event, will also preem a new section promoting Asian talent and talent agencies.
