Each meeting is pre-chosen by each Industry Participant to discuss the production of their film, fine-tune their pitch, and/or to simply make a connection with the industry. An esteemed jury comprised of Daniel Dae Kim, Iris Yamashita and Teddy Zee awarded the Jury Prize to Liselle Mei and Derek Nguyen for their film SEEING RED in which they also received a cash prize. Honorable Mention was awarded to Musa Syeed and Nicholas Bruckman for their film THE DOCTOR.
