Project Spotlight

NAFF Project Spotlight was launched in 2008 to select one Asian country every year to spotlight the genre film of that country. This year Project Spotlight will introduce Japanese projects. Directors and producers of the selected projects will have 1:1 business meetings with international film industry professionals to explore the opportunities for co-productions, investment, and distribution. The participating projects will also be nominated for cash prizes and post-production support grants. A jury of international film industry experts will determine the winners through individual meetings with directors and producers of each project.
