14th Annual Asian Film Market: A Recap

From October 5th to October 7th Eastwest Filmdistribution was represented at this year’s “Asian Film Market” in Busan, South Korea. The mission was to showcase our latest acquisition “The Accidental Rebel” alongside other recent acquisitions of different genres. During the event our representative Marek Poznerowicz managed to gain interest for our films from various companies. Over the course of the event, he managed to get different impressions from each day.

DAY 1:

“Everybody arrived today. It seems rather quiet, as everybody still suffers from Jetlag. The few meeting that were held were conducted in a very relaxed manner. The atmosphere in general seemed very relaxed.

The day wouldn’t really become busy until the afternoon. It became very crowdy and it seemed as people almost got into a collective rush. The evening was concluded with a very nice, interesting welcome party.”

DAY 2:

“The second day also provided the opportunity to negotiate with interesting business partners from all over the world. The day seemed less crowdy as the first, nonetheless it proved to be very busy. On the second day a little bit of spare time made a stroll through the city possible.

Busan at night provides interesting impressions across the city. The eastern Asian culture throughout the streets and roads is an intriguing change to the business related routine. A visit on the beach also provided a spectacular view during nighttime.”

DAY 3:

“During the final day of the market, a lot of interest was gathered around the booth of EastWest once again. Many businesses, mostly from Japan, China, Taiwan and Korea showed interest in the catalogue of EastWest Filmdistribution. The interested fields of exploitations were also very diverse.

Throughout the market no deals were closed. Nonetheless, a lot of companies showed interest in a follow-up after the market. It also provided the opportunity to increase our network of contacts who also might be interested in collaborating with EastWest during future projects.

“The Accidental Rebel” Goes To Asia

Our latest acquisition “The Accidental Rebel” will be included in this year’s competition of the International Film Festival in Busan, South Korea. The festvial will hold four screenings of the film:

Harri, a deeply troubled father seeking to reconnect with his son, Simo, soon finds that escaping his past mistakes will take more than moving to a remote Finnish village.
When Simo begins experiencing similar problems on his own, Harri realises that he must face his demons and for once live up to the standards he has set for his son. But in a provincial, deeply religious, close-knit society, steeped in envy and as cold as the snow that surrounds them, Harri will have to resort to the one thing he has feared the most: the truth.
