  • Asian Project Market (APM) is a co-production platform that offers emerging filmmakers the opportunity to meet international leading film professionals. 
    After launching in 1998 as Pusan Promotion Plan (PPP), it has grown into the biggest and most important pre-market in Asia. In 2011, it was renamed as Asian Project Market and has been successfully delivering its role as cradle of creativity. 
    Each year APM discovers fresh feature film projects ranging from big-scale commercial film projects to low-budget indies and links them with global film investors, producers and distributors. Numerous APM projects have already made it through to completion and received positive responses from both film festivals and international audiences. As such, APM continues to earn greater interest from filmmakers around the world. 
    The 20th Asian Project Market will take place for three days on October 15-17, 2017. Please feel free to contact APM team for any inquiries about participation in APM as project team or industry guest.
