The AFA Academy’s Young Film Professionals Program offers overseas training opportunities in mature film industries to enable promising early career professionals in film to develop their skills, international outlook, professional relationships and knowledge so as to move to the next stage of their career. Two successful applicants were sent to The Post Republic in Berlin (Germany) on a two-month work placement respectively in its Film Sound and VFX departments to learn working methods, structures, technologies, and peer networking in the young professional’s discipline. The Program also serves to develop the relationship between Asian film professionals with those that are outside the region.
