2007/10/16 | 600 views | Permalink | Source

The Asian Film Market was again bustling in its second year although buyers tended to window-shop and take notes for later. A number of Korean films were picked up mainly for TV/DVD rights. Korean sales agent Cineclick Asia sealed a number of deals, selling all rights to Kim Ki-duk's "Breath" to Saudi Arabia-based Ghassan Production and Distribution for the Middle Eastern territories.

The company also picked up DVD/TV rights to KIM's "The Bow" and "3-Iron", along with "The Birth of a Family", "Red Shoes", "Fighter in the Wind", "Love Me Not", "Seducing Mr. Perfect", and Kim Jee-woon's "A Tale of Two Sisters" from Cineclick. More TV rights went to Japan's Nettai Museum for horror films "Red Shoes" and "Acacia" along with "The Wolf Returns" and "Mission Sex Control". Meanwhile Hungary's Cinetel bought TV/VOD/Video rights to Kim Ki-duk's "Samaria", "Red Shoes", and "A Tale of Two Sisers".

In a major deal, CJ Entertainment sold a four-feature package to buyer Splendid for Germany. Rights were sold for "West 32nd", a high-profile feature set in New York and directed by Korean-Amercian Michael Kang, psychological-thriller "Black House" by Shin Terra a Korean-Japanese co-production, medical-horror "Wide Awake" by Lee Kyoo-man, Kim Tae-kyeong's 2006 feature "Puzzle".

At the Pusan Promotion Plan pre-market, the top prize of US$20 000 in production support went to "11 Flowers"by China 's Wang Xiaoshuai. The Kodak Award of $20 000 in film stock went to Korea 's Park Ki-bok for his project "Farewell". The Cineclick Asia award of $10 000 went to SONO Sion of Japan for "Room of Dreams". The Busan Film Commission presented an award of $10 000 to "Bi, Don't Be Afraid"by PHAN Dang Di. Finally, the Overseas Korean Foundation (OKF Fund) awarded $10 500 to Korean-American Michael Kang's "Sea of Tranquility".
