Asian Film Market 2018

Book To Film

Home E-IP Market Book To Film

‘Book To Film’ pitching event provides an opportunity to meet with publishers, directors, and producers looking to negotiate contracts for original property rights over content for film production. As a number of Book To Film projects introduced over the past 6 years are now in the process of making, or have already made, successful business deals, there has been increasing interest in the Book To Film pitching event from both the publishing and film industries.

This year’s projects are richer in diversity than ever. Romance, sci-fi, and the steadily strong genre thriller are noticeable. The selected 15 book projects with inventive subject materials and strong planning skills are expected to attract significant attention.
