The Shanghai International Film Festival (SIFF) has unveiled the 30 projects that will participate in the two strands of its SIFF Project annual co-production market.

Co-production Film Pitch & Catch (Co-FPC) will present 22 projects that are suitable for co-production with China, while eight projects have been selected for China Film Pitch & Catch, which focuses on up-and-coming Chinese directors.  

An international jury including director Sun Zhou, producer Li Lie and Cloud Atlas producer Philip Lee will decide on the “best creative project” during the festival.

Co-FPC projects include Chinese Lover from leading Taiwanese filmmaker Sylvia Chang; Korean filmmaker Kim Tae-Kyung’s A Dog Day Adventure; and Love In Kiwi Island to be co-directed by Li Tao and Paul Murphy.

CFPC projects include singer and actress Tian Yuan’s feature Forgot To Forget; screenwriter Zha Muchun’s directorial debut Rock On; and Li Xiaofeng’s Scrape My Bone, to be produced by director Zhang Yuan.

SIFF Project will be held June 16-19, during the Shanghai International Film Festial which is taking place June 15-23. SIFF recently unveiled its competition section of 12 features including Sherwood Hu’s Amazing, Kang Woo-suk’s Fists Of Legend and Dante Lam’s Unbeatable.
