In the 11th edition, approximately 700 private business meetings had been arranged for the 30 filmmaking teams including 25 HAF Projects and 5 HAF/Fox Chinese Film Development Award Finalists over the three-day period.

Thomas BERTACCHE @ Tucker Film

“I have to say that HAF is one of the most professional events I’ve been attending - the planning, execution, as well as kind reminders from the team to book schedules in advance (and e-mailing of final schedule a day prior) are very nice and needed indeed”
Sten-Kristian SALUVEER @ Talinn Black Nights Film Festival

“Some of the filmmakers I met will very likely apply for Visions Sud Est, the funding grant I was promoting at HAF… To describe HAF - Rewarding”
