Arthur Jones has been in Bangkok, Thailand this week for Asian Side of the Doc, one of the premiere documentary marketplaces in the Asia-Pacific region. Arthur was invited to pitch The Six to financiers and commissioners, in the hope of securing the remaining production funds.
After 4 days of meetings and and networking, he was honoured with the Best Asian Pitch Award at the closing ceremony on Thursday (Nov 3rd) . As part of the prize, The Six will be included in pitch sessions at Sunny Side of the Doc, Asian Side’s parent festival, in France in June 2017. Sunny Side is among the world’s largest documentary marketplaces.
Arthur said, “We joined the pitch session just a few days before it took place, so it’s a fantastic surprise to take this award. We’re looking forward to attending Sunny Side of the Doc in June, and are very optimistic that we will soon have the funds in place to begin production.”
