Asian Contents & Film Market 2021 Final Report
Record Number of Business Meetings at Asian Contents & Film Market

At the Asian Contents & Film Market, which was held online and on-site, a global attention on K-Contents and an explosive demand for in-person business could be confirmed. The Asian Project Market and the E-IP Market, which were held on-site for Koreans and online for foreign participants, a number of total meetings of over 1,300, which is the highest in their history, was recorded. In particular, as the interest in original IP rights has grown larger than ever, around 800 meetings - three times last year's - were held, and that number is expected to grow even larger in the future. At the Asia Contents Awards and the Asian Film Awards, which were broadcast live online, excellent series and films from Korea and Asia were highlighted. The online conference, which was broadcast on YouTube, provided a time for checking in with the current status of the K-Contents industry and look to its future.
