CCAM announces collaboration with SAAVA on SAFF Project Market 2016

Kuala Lumpur, 3 August 2016 — Today, Creative Content Association Malaysia (CCAM), announced the collaboration with Southeast Asian Audio-Visual Association (SAAVA) at the upcoming Southeast Asian Film Financing (SAFF) Project Market 2016, enabling Malaysian feature film content creators to submit feature-length projects of which 5 will be selected and thereafter matched to a global network of media financiers, distributors and collaborators thus bringing these projects closer to fruition.

SAFF Project Market 2016 will be held at the Marina Bay Sands Singapore from 7 – 9 December 2016. “This Project Market is in line with the needs of our local film industry’s yearning to hook up with international film industry players to produce films that speak to the world audience,” said Dato’ Mahyidin Mustakim, Chief Executive Officer of CCAM. “Providing a platform where our local content can thrive in the global arena creates an opportunity that is not to be missed, and the location where it is to be held that is closer to home is unmistakably perfect,” he added.

Justin Deiman, Executive Director of SAAVA and Managing Partner of Aurora Media Capital, an international media fund based out of Singapore said, "Malaysia is a key film market in the Southeast Asian content equation. There's a huge growth potential there given the
institutional support it has been receiving, and most importantly, there's an exceptionally strong talent base there that's pushing out international quality projects that will break out beyond its borders."

This marks the first collaboration between CCAM and SAAVA, and fulfils one of CCAM’s mandate and agenda which is to promote and export local content to overseas market. Driven by initiatives that will propel Malaysian filmmakers onto the international scene, CCAM believes this collaboration will flourish and develop into something that establishes Malaysian filmmakers as talents that can stand on equal grounds with successful international filmmakers.

"Given the keen sense of interest surrounding the surge of great content coming from Malaysia, SAAVA is delighted to work with CCAM in creating an initiative highlighting the exciting new wave of Malaysian filmmakers who will showcase their world-class projects to top financiers from around the world at the SAFF Project Market," Justin said.
Submissions for Southeast Asian Film Financing Project Market will close on 6 September 2016 and information can be accessed at
