The Asian Cinema Fund helps activate more independent film productions through the three categories of funding: the Script Development Fund, Post-Production Fund, and Asian Network of Documentary (AND) Fund.
The Script Development Fund is organized to assist Asian filmmakers in the completion of scripts. Through this fund scheme, selected projects will be awarded 10 million Korean won (approximately 10,000 USD) each.
The Post-production Fund selects high quality projects ready for post-production and provides a chance to complete the postproduction process at state-of-the-art facilities in Korea. This fund covers DI, sound mixing, and producing negatives and prints.
The Asian Network of Documentary (AND) Fund is a loose coalition of film festival organizers committed to supporting the production and distribution of Asian documentaries. In order to encourage Asian documentary filmmakers that will facilitate the production and distribution of their projects, ACF will select projects that will be awarded 10 million Korean won (approximately 10,000 USD) or 5 million Korean won (approximately 5,000 USD) each.
