Sg.SAIFF | Singapore South Asian International Film Festival
Singapore South Asian Film festival (Sg.SAIFF) is excited to announce a major new initiative "The South Asian Film Market (SAFM)". We understand that the path of acquiring funds for an independent film is quite long and often frustrating. While there seems to be a dearth of financial resources on the film maker's side, there are numerous investors who are looking for a diversified portfolio and see films as emerging assets. SAFM endeavours to bridge this gap between the film makers and the potential investors by bringing them together on a common platform where both can leverage on each others potential and SAFM will hand hold both of them through the actual signing of the deals.

Film Market Date:14 OCT
