The Multicultural Film Market is starting from the 2016 UMFF. It is open to all members of the film industry. We are building to reach the capability of fulfilling all film business needs - film sales, investments, production, location, post-production etc. at one location. However, as the first year, we focus on the following area:
1. Completed Films. This is for completed films that looking for global distribution.
2. Entertainment Intellectual Property Trade Zone. This is for intellectual property rights to a variety of original works with a focus on the film and audiovisual industries. The areas covered will include the traditional intellectual property rights such as the right to remake films or the right to adapt literary works (novels and comic books) and performances (plays and musicals). Further included in the E-IP Market are the rights to original works utilized on new media platforms (web, mobile, SNS, tablet, etc.), that are characterized with having a story format including web toons; web drama; web novel; TV variety shows; animations; promotional dramas; mobile games; online game; mobile game; and the character industry.
3. Talent Hub. Aims to become the hub of star content business, reflecting the growing demand for multicultural Artists, as the market barriers between countries diminishes. As a way to energize international co-productions, the Talent Hub will facilitate the introduction of established stars as well as the up-and-coming actors/actresses to global film industry personnel.
