Festival Scope has expanded its presence in Hong Kong. In addition to its collaboration with the Hong Kong International Film Festival and the presentation on Festival Scope of a selection of brand new Asian titles, B2B online platform Festival Scope has concluded a partnership with HAF, the Hong Kong – Asia Film Financing Forum.
The partnership highlights the HAF selected talent: a selection of the previous films of the filmmakers who have a project at HAF are now available for screening on Festival Scope. This will help potential co-producers and sales agents to follow-up their meetings in Hong Kong.
Previous films of the HAF selection of up and coming talent were shown in very prestigious film festivals like Berlinale, Rotterdam and Venice. Jacob Wong, HAF representative, says: "HAF is very happy to enter into collaboration with Festival Scope. This will on the one hand, give participating filmmakers wider exposure to industry professionals around the world, and on the other, a better understanding of the work that's being done here for people interested in co-production in Asia"
