Salt Media is among media investment films headed to the Asean International Film Festival & Awards (Aiffa) looking to invest in the best film ideas from the region.
At the first Aiffa Biz World event, regional film-makers will be able to pitch their projects to financiers from China, Korea, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, the Philippines, and Singapore.
Sherman Ng of Salt Media & Entertainment said he will be going to discuss ideas with industry participants from around the region.
“I will also be looking at projects, and networking with filmmakers who have a strong desire to push the envelope in terms of creativity and practices,” said Ng. “I believe we have, within South-east Asia, deep and varied wells of creativity. The culture that exists within South-east Asia and the expressions of artistry … throughout the region give us evidence of that.”
Previous editions of the festival have been attended by international film stars such as Jackie Chan and Michelle Yeoh, and drawn more than 100 film-makers.
