  • PPP Awards Announced


    The Pusan International Film Festival’s Pusan Promotion Plan (PPP) – an Asian feature project financing platform – announced the winners of various awards handed-out to six of the 30 projects pitched during the event.  PPP ran Oct 11 – 14 during the festival and its attendant Asian Film Market. 


    The top winner was Decadent Sisters, a new project by Japanese director-producer AOYAMA Shinji (Eureka, Sad Vacation).  It won the Pusan Award of US $20,000 presented by Busan Metropolitan City. 


    A Korean project was also a big winner with director HAN Jae-rim (The Rules of Dating, The Show Must Go On) collecting the Kodak Award of $17,000 – a prize committed to a Korean PPP project.


    The CJ Entertainment award of $10,000 went to Indian director Pan Nalin for his project Slightly Sane.  The Lotte Award which selects a Korean project at PPP, chose Villain and Widow by SON Jae-gon for a prize of $8,000. 


    The Wooridul Award of $8,000 went to New Policemen Stories by YANG Jin, a Hong Kong – China co-production.  Indonesian director Edwin also picked up $2,500 for his new project Postcards From the Zoo, a prize to support travel expenses handed out by the Göteborg Film Festival Fund.
