CALL FOR ENTRIES

Asian Film Centre Global Fest is an annual event designing to spot filmmaking talent and matching them with international sales agents. AFC Global Fest is all about true indie spirit. It is designed to be the bridge between independent filmmakers and international sales agents. Winning films will get a chance to be represented at global film markets.

With substantial revenue (sometimes well above 50 percent) coming from exploitation outside of a film’s home country, it is vital that producers should target and then structure deals with foreign sales agents.

What is an international sales agent?

An international sales agent is the conduit to your film’s distribution outside of its country of origin. The sales agent will acquire a set of rights from you, pitch and sell these distribution rights to potential distributors around the world, draft distribution agreements, deliver the physical and electronic materials of your film to these distributors and, finally, collect and pay the revenue due to you. An international agent will be your partner for years, helping craft the commercial life of your film on the world stage.

What is an independent cinema?

“independent cinema” as film outside the established system of filmmaking. Probably even more widely, beyond the established system of values: the experimental, low-budget, underground, various new wave, and so on.

Why should you submit to AFC Global Fest?

Because it is path-breaking, one of its kind event. Asia is the biggest film market of the world, e.g. Chinese film market and the Indian Film market. This is your chance to show your presence in Asia. As the submission is free you can always take a chance.

CATEGORIES

Always mention specific genre of your film. Genre is the only way that a film buyer and the marketing manager of a distribution company can quickly visualise the movie poster, trailer and marketing campaign. Never forget that distributors buy genre, not drama.

Filmmaker in focus

The first film you should see: 
A Separation – for its desperately intense characters, for the moment where Nader refuses to disrobe his ailing father before the prosecutor to produce evidence against Razieh, for the look that Termeh and Somayeh exchange while their parents bicker in the background. And for never allowing you the easy satisfaction of picking sides.
