FLY Workshop Film Programme
FLY is an annual “ASEAN-ROK Cooperation Project” funded by “ASEAN-ROK Cooperation Fund”. Initiated in 2012, the “ASEAN-ROK Film Leaders Incubator: FLY” selects 22 aspiring filmmakers from the 10 Southeast Asian countries and South Korea to be divided into two groups to make short films within a 2-week supervision and instruction by notable Asian filmmakers in a film-making workshop. It is regularly organized by the Busan Film Commission and the Asian Film Commissions Network with supporting film industry agencies in ASEAN countries taking turns every year to co-organize the event. So far, six films out of the twelve made in the FLY workshops from 2012 to 2017 have been selected for the FLY showcase in SeaShorts 2018. All six films deal with themes of human relationships, mostly those within a family as audiences will be able to fully empathize and sympathize with characters in films beyond borders.
