The ACT Government is supporting five production companies to be part of an ACT Screen Industry Trade Delegation to Hong Kong International Film & TV Market from 23–26 March 2015. ScreenACT CEO, Monica Penders, will lead the delegation to Hong Kong.

“There has been a growing engagement between Asia and the Australian screen industry in recent times, which provides terrific potential for ACT producers to work in partnership with the Asian film and television market. Members of the delegation will have an excellent opportunity to promote their projects and businesses, while also raising the ACT’s profile as a viable national and international production location,” Ms Penders said.

The ACT Screen Industry Trade Delegation members are:

ScreenACT – Monica Penders
SilverSun Pictures – Andrew Marriott
SilverSun Pictures – Rohan Taylor
JIA Films – Cindy Li
JIA Films – Robert Macklin
Kreiworks – Lina Silva
Peace Mountain Productions – Ian Hart
Peace Mountain Productions – Jun Xiao
Fillearth Pty Ltd – Abhijit Deonath
The delegation supports producers and screen businesses that have substantial plans to build their project slate in Asia. This may include seeking potential co-productions and co-financing partners from the Asian region, and building relationships with other screen companies. Many of the projects have a strong Asian focus, and the Hong Kong Film Market will present a fantastic opportunity to develop possible collaborations.

For the delegation visit to Hong Kong recipients received matched funding of up to $15,000 to support travel costs, which may include future delegations to MIPTV in France and beyond. Some members of the delegation have also arranged to travel to Mainland China after Hong Kong to participate in additional business-to-business meetings.
