Asian Film Market, expanding into non-film content beyond film!
With a newly reinforced organization, the Asian Film Market will meet new challenges and expand its current well-positioned film sector business into non-film content sectors. This approach can be interpreted as a first step into becoming an effective content market that includes both TV series and contents available through streaming platforms.
The Asian Film Market plans to establish the first ever Asia Contents Awards this year. Awards will be presented to recognize excellence in content presented by Asian countries as well as to honor and encourage the most well-loved and influential contents of the year.
With the Asia Contents Awards, the market is expected to branch out as Asia’s largest film market with diverse video contents distributed on TV channels and OTT platforms.
