Following Hong Kong, Seoul, Tokyo, Kuala Lumpur and Chengdu, Xiamen now welcomes you to the 6th Asian Side of the Doc, 17-20 March 2015, for four days of sales market, pitching sessions with awards, panels, one-to-one meetings, training workshops, networking and social events – all to coproduce, sell and buy documentary.

Situated on the South-East coast of China (Fujian Strait), the city of Xiamen with its palm trees, vast beaches and historical architecture is the perfect location to gather the international documentary community, reach new audiences and find new partners on the rapidly-expanding Asian factual scene.

CEO of Sunny Side international documentary markets, Yves Jeanneau, said the 2015 edition will be looking to highlight outstanding “Asia to Asia” and “Asia to the rest of the world” co-productions. “As we did last year, we’ll bring well developed and original projects from China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan… and also from new players in South-East Asia. Don’t miss the “China Pitch” on the very first day and meet the actual Chinese buyers who need programmes! Pre-event workshops on March 16th have also been specially tailored to reinforce our long-time mission of encouraging high quality international co-productions.”

Organised by Sunny Side of the Doc and Xiamen Doc, with the support of the Media Programme of the European Union and CCTV group, Asian Side of the Doc 2015 offers extensive opportunities for all delegates with access key distributors, commissioners, funders, advisors and buyers from across Asia and beyond.
