With participants from countries in all corners of the region, this diverse group of filmmakers will examine the diversity and depth of storytelling offered by the Asia Pacific region. The discussion will focus on what exciting new experiences this can bring and is bringing to audiences on screen, and how the MPA APSA Academy Film Fund is contributing to discovering and developing these stories.
Participating Filmmakers: Robert Connolly (Australia), Dechen Roder (Bhutan), Maryam Ebrahimi (Sweden / Iran), Oh Jung Mi (Republic of Korea). Moderated by Patrick Frater, Asian Editor, Variety.
