The AIDC team is back from the 10th anniversary CNEX Chinese Documentary Forum (CCDF) in Taipei and the first-ever DMZ Docs in South Korea. Awards were given at each event to promising new documentary projects from the Asia-Pacific region, with the producers of each now invited to bring them to AIDC 2020.
AIDC AT CCDF 2019
Two promising projects picked up AIDC Awards at CCDF, held in Taipei, Taiwan from 18-24 September.
The story of a woman equally fierce about her boxing career and motherhood, Mom of the Ring (China), and an astonishingly beautiful look at a disappearing all-female Buddhist monastery, Dark Red Forest (China, pictured), were the recipients.
Both projects have been invited to submit to the AIDC 2020 marketplace, with the pitching teams to be provided free registration.
