The Network of Asian Fantastic Films (NAFF) was launched in 2008 as the world’s first genre film industry program. Over the past 14 years, the program has selected 329 projects, of which 64 have gone on to completion, and it has established itself as an Asian hub for supporting and cultivating filmmakers.
The 2021 NAFF project market - which, with 40 selections from 28 countries, will be presenting more projects than ever before - will be holding business meetings online this year. Project Spotlight has chosen to introduce projects from Korea this year, and post-production support will be given through the Work in Progress program, which was launched last year in collaboration with the Seoul Business Agency (SBA). Furthermore, the NAFF project market will continue to work in cooperation with Northern Europe and South America through the Nordic Genre Invasion and Blood Window.
Outstanding projects that have undergone preliminary and final rounds of judging will receive cash awards and post-production support via C-47 and Singapore’s Mocha Chai Laboratories.
