TIFFCOM unveils projects market, partners with ACE
Tokyo International Film Festival’s contents market TIFFCOM (October 23-25) has announced the participants and partners for its reworked projects market.
19 projects from Japan, Korea, Europe and other territories have been selected to participate in the second edition of the market since its overhaul last year.
This year TIFF partners with ACE (Ateliers du Cinéma Européen) to introduce five projects as part of the newly established ACE co-production lab, running concurrently from October 23-26. The lab will bring together European and Japanese producers for a four-day workshop with presentations, pitch sessions and networking events.
TIFFCOM also continues its partnership with KOFIC, introducing five projects from Korea, including Hur Jin-ho’s upcoming The Last Princess. Four domestic projects will join as well as entries from the US, China, Indonesia and New Zealand.
Last year’s new talent project, Kyoko Miyake’s post-Fukushima disaster documentary Beyond The Wave, won a TIFFCOM project development support grant and subsequently found co-production partners at NHK, BBC and from other territories.
As previously reported TIFFCOM moves from Roppongi to a larger venue at the Odaiba waterfront district for its 9th edition.
