Asian Cinema Fund 2022: Funding News

Posted by

Busan’s Asian Cinema Fund (ACF) is returning this year after a two-year hiatus, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, with a selection of 13 projects from a total of 521 submissions across three production support categories; the Script Development Fund, the Post-Production Fund, and the Asian Network of Documentary (AND) Fund. 

ACF recently moved under the umbrella of Busan’s Asian Contents & Film Market (ACFM), with the aim of strengthening business ties and cooperation between selected films and industry programmes. As part of this effort, the three Script Development Fund selections will be invited to the Asian Project Market (APM, October 9-11) and provided with business meeting opportunities.
