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.
