TIES THAT BIND is an innovative programme designed to assist 10 producers from Asia and Europe with potential European-Asian co-production projects. The selected producers work together on their feature projects in two workshops during the Udine Far East Film Festival and the Busan International Film Festival, focusing on script analysis, financial and marketing strategies, legal aspects as well as funding sources in both regions.
