Asia film forum hopes to lure industry

Commission to hold first Film Policy Forum

SEOUL — Korea’s Busan Film Commission and Asian Film Commission Network (AFCNet) will hold the first Film Policy Forum, a two-day confab beginning Oct. 4.

The Forum hopes to help develop the Asia-Pacific film industry by coordinating governments’ policies in the region.

Agents and officials from 14 countries will get together to discuss new business models, particularly finding new incentives to attract more productions from Hollywood and elsewhere.

Various government offices will present each country’s co-production and location policies, including China’s State Administration of Radio Film and Television, Japan’s Agency for Cultural Affairs and the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federations among others.

The Philippines’ Big Foot Entertainment and China’s Hengdian World Studio will be introduced as examples of new business models that have developed niches in the Asian film market.

Ty Warren, an executive vice president of DreamWorks, will talk about the Asian biz from Hollywood’s perspective.

The cities of Busan in South Korea and Sapporo in Japan will sign a memorandum of understanding to facilitate cooperation in film education, co-production and bilateral distribution.

The Busan Intl. Film Commission and Industry Showcase (Bifcom) runs Oct. 3-5.
