Festival Scope adds HAF pact in addition to Hong Kong International Film Festival.
Online industry platform Festival Scope has added a new partnership with HAF, the Hong Kong - Asia Film Financing Forum.
This builds on Festival Scope’s existing collaboration with the Hong Kong International Film Festival.
Festival Scope will boost HAF selected talent by offering a selection of the previous films of the filmmakers who have a project at HAF.
Festival Scope also works with a number of other top co-production markets, including Busan’s APM, Rotterdam’s CineMart, Berlinale Coproduction Market, Guadalajara’s Ibero-American Coproduction Meetings, Locarno’s Open Doors, Dubai’s Film Connection and Sarajevo’s CineLink among others.
Jacob Wong, HAF representative, said: “HAF is very happy to enter into collaboration with Festival Scope. This will on the one hand, give participating filmmakers wider exposure to industry professionals around the world, and on the other, a better understanding of the work that’s being done here for people interested in co-production in Asia”
Alessandro Raja, founder of Festival Scope, added: “We are thrilled to present HAF’s great selection. Hong Kong is the ideal place to spot the new Asian talent and HAF it’s definitely an unmissable opportunity for that”
