Market roundup: Two each in Rotterdam and Hong Kong

There's a couple recently announced project markets.

First up from January 29 to February 1 is CineMart, the project market of the International Film Festival Rotterdam. It has two Thai-related projects.

Le Vent des ombres is by Christelle Lheureux and co-produced by Apichatpong Weerasethakul's Kick the Machine and France's Independencia Productions. Apichatpong previously collaborated with the French filmmaker Lheureux on the 2005 tsunami short film Ghost of Asia.

And there's The White Buffalo, the next feature project by Wonderful Town and Hi-So director Aditya Assarat and his Pop Pictures shingle. He told me recently that his next film was going to be about me. I guess he wasn't kidding.

Next, from March 19 to 21 is HAF, the Hong Kong Asia Film Financing Forum, which has two more projects.

There's another Thai co-production: Hangman by Jakrawal Nilthamrong and Romania's Ionut Piturescu. It's being pitched in partnership with Copenhagen's CPH:DOX festival and Thailand's Extra Virgin Company. It's a result of the 2012 selection for the DOX:LAB project, which pairs European filmmakers with filmmakers from Asia, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa. A previous project from this initiative is last year's Vanishing Woman by Uruphong Raksasad and Danish director Jesper Just.

Also at HAF is Kongdej Jaturanrasamee with Tang Wong, which has Kongdej teaming back up with his P-047 producer Soros Sukhum.
