The First Feature program at Reel Asian is designed exclusively for filmmakers who are in the pre-production phase for their first feature film or web series.
The program offers participants access to the 2018 Reel Asian Film Festival programming, invite-only bootcamp, the Reel Ideas Conference, and select Reel Ideas programming post-festival.
Similar to Reel Asian’s So You Think You Can Pitch? competition, First Feature is streamlined to support participants in developing their project, funding applications, networking tactics, and help bridge the gap from short film production to feature film or web series production.
First Feature Finalists:
Andrew Chiu – The Scars That Bind
Alexander Humilde – Nightcaller
Khizer Khani – The Sun Hangs Low Tonight
Ian Tuason – Profiles
Reel Asian is a recognized partner of the Telefilm Canada’s Talent to Watch Program. All First Feature participants are eligible to apply for this program which supports the funding of First Feature Films and Web Projects from Emerging Filmmakers.
