CineAsia to honor Tropfest founder Polson

He'll be feted Dec. 13 in Hong Kong

CineAsia has tapped Tropfest founder and copyright advocate John Polson to receive the confab’s “MPA Asia-Pacific Copyright Educator (A.C.E.)” award. He’ll be feted Dec. 13 at the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong.

After founding the Tropfest film festival, Polson has focused on advocating for the protection of the industry’s copyrighted material. In January, Tropfest partnered with the Motion Picture Assn., Asia Pacific, to support emerging filmmakers, as well as protect content.

“Artists need support, time and money to develop their ideas and if people rip stuff off, you don’t have to be brilliant to figure out that you’re ultimately going to affect the end product,” Polson said.

CineAsia runs Dec. 11-13 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center.
