Asian Contents & Film Market (ACFM) changed the name, fifteen years after its establishment in 2006. It adds clarity to ACFM's belief in solidifying its foundation as a total contents market that includes both film and content distributed on TV, OTT, and other diverse platforms. Asian Contents & Film Market serves as a total film market covering all stages of the film industry from pre-production to film sales. Asian Contents & Film Market 2020 will be held alongside Asian Project Market (APM) and Entertainment Intellectual Property (E-IP) Market at the 25th Busan International Film Festival. 

ACFM 2020, which will be held online, offers Market Badge holders Online Booth and Market Screening for free of charge to communicate with buyers around the world.
