Asian Producers Network
A platform to deepen dialogue and discover opportunities for collaboration, the Asian Producers Network invites emerging producers from the region to share their wealth of knowledge and ideas with one another.
The week-long programme comprises closed-door roundtable discussions, masterclasses, case studies and individual meetings. Participants will address a range of pertinent topics relating to project development, content production in the region as well as support within the international film festival circuit and from funding bodies.
