Australia and Korea get closer behind the scenes

Screen Australia and the Korean Film Council (KOFIC) will sign an official Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in Busan, signaling more co-production of films between the countries.

Screen Australia’s Chief Operating Officer Fiona Cameron said: “This new step will present some fantastic opportunities for both countries especially in children’s animation.”

Ms Cameron is attending the 35th Australia-Korea Business Council and Korea-Australia Business Council Joint Meeting, where she will chair a session of the Services Sector Promotion Forum focusing on audiovisual co-production opportunities.

Writer/director/producer Robert Connolly, whose film Paper Planes will have its Asian premier at the Busan International Film Festival said, “This MoU between Screen Australia and KOFIC is a major step in encouraging Australian and Korean filmmakers to collaborate with support from both countries, and we look forward to working with Korea again in the near future.”
