I probably can't qualify to comment much since I still haven't attended a significant number of film marts in the circuit out there outside of Hong Kong's and Tokyo's, but I suppose the pictures here will tell a thousand words that some buzz is quite missing. That doesn't mean that no deals got struck during the event though. Perhaps it's because it's the first time such an event is organized here, so I guess the only way to go, is up.
That is not to say that there weren't much available, as there were opportunities to speak to people and find out more about the films they were marketing (such as The Genius of Beauty) and get acquainted with some potential films on the horizon, such as James Leong's Camera and to pick up back issues of print editions of Film Business Asia.
