ATF Animation, Chinese and Formats Pitches champions react to their wins
Winners of the Asia TV Forum & Market (ATF) Animation, Chinese and Formats Pitches were announced after a series of online Live pitches that took place virtually.
For the pitch winners, clinching the top honours was a recognition of the hard work they have put in. Pang Mee Mee, a Singaporean whose entry won the Chinese scriptwriting category, shared that the win gave her a confidence boost.
Pang was among the finalists who presented their ideas to the judging panels. The three panels, which included leading producers and commissioning editors, also provided valuable input for each of the projects.
The series of pitches is part of the In Development programme at ATF Online+, which aims to spot ideas and groom Asian talent. Apart from providing them a platform to showcase their creativity, winning projects stand a chance to be linked up with well-established industry players, helping to propel the winning concept into production for exposure within and outside Asia.
