Asian New Talent Award

The Asian New Talent Award of the Shanghai International Film Festival (SIFF) will be fully newly upgraded launched for this year's 18th Annual SIFF.  It will become the only professional award in Asia that adopts a “nomination system” to recognize new talents.  Established for over a decade, the award last year set a target goal last year of promoting “Asian, Chinese and New Talent” features in movies.
Movies eligible to sign up for the six awards of Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress, Best Actor, Best Screenplay and Best Cinematography include the first two works of Asian directors, actors, screenwriters, and cinematographers.  The works should have been be produced after January 1, 2014 and be no less than 70 minutes in length, released or not.
