Asian Film Market
Celebrating its fifth year, ‘BOOK TO FILM’ creates a window of opportunity to connect the publishing and film industries. At the event, publishers and filmmakers discuss the viability of adapting books into films. Due to the strength of the works previously selected, numerous contracts have been successfully negotiated every year of the event. As the number of submissions increase and the quality improves every year, more literary works are being filmed, drawing strong attention from directors, producers, IP providers and other media professionals.
Out of the outstanding submissions this year, 10 works of exceptional storylines were selected; and the majority is in the thriller genre. The 10 selected books will be presented at the ‘Book To Film’ pitching event.
