ASEAN-ROK Film Leaders Incubator: FLY2018
What is the FLY Project?
The FLY Project sheds new light on a problem that have been ignored for years in Asia: There are a lot of talented young film-makers who are lack of facilities and education. The high-quality of film education and film facilities were not available for them so far. FLY would like to give them opportunities to meet good mentors who are going to help them and to make their dreams come true using fine film-making facilities.
With the advent of the FLY Project, the problem can be solved. We ensure that young film-makers with great potentials, no matter where they live, will meet mentors who gives practical advice to them and will be able to use state-of-the-art facilities that make their visions to be real. We are proud to say that we are taking part of building the future of Asian film industry: these young film-makers will lead the development of film industry in their home countries showing what can be achieved, and they will follow the footsteps of their mentors.
We are Certain, We FLY
ASEAN-ROK Film Leaders Incubator: FLY2018 is basically a short-filmmaking workshop where aspiring film-makers from the 10 Southeast Asian countries and South Korea are divided into two groups; then each group will make two short films in 2 weeks of period under the supervision and instruction of famed Asian film-makers.
Launched in 2012, FLY is an annual ASEAN-ROK Cooperation Project funded by ASEAN-ROK Cooperation Fund. Regularly organized by the Busan Film Commission and the Asian Film Commissions Network, film industry-supporting agencies in ASEAN member nations take turns each year to co-organize the event in their region.
