Asian IP Showcase Selections

As a result of the continuing enthusiastic support enjoyed by Book To Film and E-IP Pitching, E-IP Market was able to present its first Asian IP Showcase in 2018. The Asian IP Showcase introduces original content from all across Asia and trades in the intellectual property rights of original works, providing an opportunity to experience the characteristics and trends of content from various nations. This year, we introduced selected works from the traditional IP powerhouse of Japan, as well as Taiwan. Also, we are confident that the Asian Film Market will grow to become the center of original IP trading in Asia.
