Asian Network of Documentary (AND) Fund

Institution: Asian Cinema Fund

Overview

The AND Fund is a loose coalition of film festival organizers committed to supporting the production and distribution of Asian documentaries. Its members collaborate to build and strengthen the network among Asian documentary filmmakers, while the administration and oversight of AND are being managed by BIFF.

The AND fund is made possible by four universities in the Busan region: YoungSan University, DongSeo University, Dong-Eui University, and Pusan National University along with Busan Bank, the BIFF Supporters Committee, and the BIFF Mecenat.

During the Busan International Film Festival, AND holds various programs, including the AND Clinics and one-on-one meeting. AND programs introduce useful knowledge to Asian filmmakers to polish up their projects, enhance the practical skills, and broaden insights into documentary markets. AND also organizes several showcases to present films that were completed with the support of AND funds. In cooperation with international documentary film festivals, AND expands their opportunity and seeks new distribution networks for documentary films.
