The latest in our ScreenDaily Talks live Q&A series will take place on Monday October 26 at 9am UK time (6pm Busan time) and will explore how filmmaking is safely restarting in Asia. This instalment of ScreenDaily Talks is sponsored by the Film Development Council of the Philippines.
Experts from across Asia will discuss safe shooting protocols in different territories, and also how producers are nimbly re-imagining location shooting and the refinancing of films. We also look ahead to the 2021 production pipeline, including trends of film financing across Asia and how to best develop co-productions during pandemic times.
The speakers are: Liza Diño-Seguerra, chairman and chief executive officer of the Film Development Council of the Philippines; Jeremy Chua, producer and founder of Potocol (Singapore); and Kim Hyo-jeong, producer, Film Line (South Korea). The moderator is Wendy Mitchell, contributing editor, Screen International.
The 30-minute discussion will be followed by a 30-minute live Q&A in which the audience will be able to ask questions to the speakers; advance questions can also be sent to [email protected]. The webinar password will be emailed after registration.
The webinar will be available to watch on Screendaily after it has taken place.
