Singapore – ScreenSingapore (SS) 2015, Southeast Asia’s marketplace for filmed entertainment is back this year with a brand new feature; the Southeast Asian Film Financing (SAFF) Project Market. As the first of its kind to be featured at SS, the SAFF Project Market will take place from 2-4 December 2015.
Co-located with the Asia TV Forum & Market (ATF), the SAFF Project Market is held at the Marina Bay Sands Singapore and in partnership with the Southeast Asian Audio-Visual Association (SAAVA) and the Ties that Bind (TTB) producing workshop. SAAVA is a non-profit association established to strengthen collaborations between media producers and financiers in Southeast Asia, while TTB is an innovative programme designed to assist 10 producers from Asia and Europe with potential European-Asian co-production projects. This launch pad serves to connect promising producers and their projects with commissioners, investors, and co-production partners.
“With this latest addition to ScreenSingapore, the promising minds in film making will have the opportunity and a platform to experience skills and knowledge transfer and potentially be paired up with international financiers and co-producers within the region to push their projects forward,” said Yeow Hui Leng, Senior Project Director of Asia TV Forum & Market and ScreenSingapore, Reed Exhibitions.
