About SAFM

Where creativity meets finance

South Asian Film Market (SAFM) We aim to be the premiere platform in Asia for film related business activity including production, financing and distribution.
This film market is unique in the fact that it introduces pre-vetted marketable film content to high-networth individuals as an alternative asset class unlike other film markets which are primarily limited to people from the film industry.
Riding on the success of the first edition last year, SAFM 2019 presents a curated selection of thirteen film projects from South Asian Filmmakers, that were selected from the numerous entries received in response to our open call-for-entry. This years expanded second edition features thirteen selected filmmakers to pitch their vision and stories to a celebrated panel of film experts comprising the biggest names in world cinema.
A new highlight of this edition of SAFM is the addition of a Book to Screen section which will see five selected publishers present the cinematic potential of their portfolio fiction and non fiction titles.
This is a major and a unique trade initiative in business friendly Singapore, which brings creativity and finance together on an exciting platform. Singapore being the bridge between South East Asia and South Asia serves very appropriate as a host nation.
At SAFM we hope to give wings to filmmakers and their stories as well as create a new set of stakeholders in the world of independent cinema.
