Seoul – In conjunction with the first anniversary of Discovery Channel Korea, Discovery Networks Asia-Pacifi c (DNAP) has
launched the First Time Filmmakers (FTFM) Korea, a project designed to help develop and support the documentary storytelling skills of Korean fi lmmakers. Discovery Channel was first introduced in South Korea in 1994 but began a 24-hour localised feed in partnership with Korea’s Central Multi Broadcasting (CMB) last year.
FTFM Korea is targeted at providing Korean fi lmmakers with
the opportunity to showcase their talent and gain recognition on
an international level, through hands-on training and professional
development from award-winning producers from Discovery Channel.
