In its 18th edition, APM, the largest investment and co-production market in Asia, selected a total of 442 projects over the past 17 years, in which approximately 200 projects were completed and introduced in prestigious international film festivals. 

This year’s official selections include 30 titles from 15 countries out of which three are from India!.

APM 2015 presents projects by young up-and-coming Asian directors such as  "Agra" by Kanu Behl (India) who was invited to the Un Certain Regard section of 2014 Cannes Film Festival with his first feature film "Titli", "Cha Cha Cha" by  Do Quoc Trung (Vietnam) and "The Wasted Lan" by Eddie Cahyono (Indonesia) who was invited to the 2014 Rotterdam International Film Festival with SITI.

Korean projects mark a strong presence at this year’s APM with new projects. Also worthy of note this year is the increase in the participation of various Asian countries. Out of many projects from internationally renowned animation directors, “Bombay Rose” by Gitanjali Rao (India) was selected.
Moreover, the selected projects show the current trend of how co-productions between countries surpassed all boundaries.

APM 2015 will take place for 3 days starting Sunday, October 4 to Tuesday, October 6,
in Busan at the BEXCO Exhibition Center II, Hall 4.
