    The Asian Cinema Fund, a branch of the Busan International Film Festival, has sent out its call for submissions for this year’s edition. ACN is seeking new projects from talented young filmmakers looking for funding support in order to boost independent film production in the region.

    Projects in need of DI, sound mixing, and Digital Cinema Package services as well as the use of state-of-the-art facilities in Korea, can avail of ACF’s Post-production Fund. For projects in the pre-productions stage, ACF’s Script Development Fund will give a 10,000,000 KRW (approx. USD 10,000) to three Korean projects and five Asian projects deemed to have promise.
