Posted by

SIFF Project, the projects market of Shanghai International Film Festival, has selected 33 projects across four categories.

Work In Progress includes two projects selected for last year’s Tokyo Gap Financing Market – Song Pengfei’s Untamed and Jatla Siddartha’s In The Belly Of A Tiger – while the Pre-production section includes a new work from Geng Zihan, whose debut feature A Song Sung Blue premiered at this year’s Cannes Directors Fortnight (see full list below).

This year’s edition of Shanghai International Film Festival (June 9-18) will be the first to be held in a fully physical format with international guests since before the pandemic.
