ATF – Weiyu, Studio76 Expand the RisingStories Screenplay Contest

Singapore’s Weiyu Films has teamed up with Taiwan’s Studio76 to expand the RisingStories screenplay competition.

Studio76 launched the first RisingStories International Story Pitching Competition in 2021, attracting more than 550 Chinese language entries from the region. As the event grows, it will also open to English-language scripts.

The 2023 round is for media professionals who want to develop their ideas into either feature films or episodic television series for the global market.

Studio76 specializes in the development and investment of original IP content, from script incubation to production and global distribution. So far, the focus has been on local issues with international appeal. His latest streaming film You Have To Kill Me, available exclusively on Disney+ in Taiwan and Hong Kong and exclusively on Youku in China, was an award winner at the 2022 ContentAsia Awards and the recent Asian Academy Creative Awards, and received nominations for Taiwan’s Golden Bell TV Awards.

Weiyu recently attracted attention with This Land Is Mine, which won Best Drama Series at the ContentAsia Awards and was shortlisted for Best Drama at the Rose d’Or Awards. Weiyu now has over 200 hours of IP library.

The two companies celebrated a signing ceremony of their new partnership at the Asia TV Forum on Wednesday. Lee Izero, CEO of TAICCA, was a notable guest at the event.

“There is such a great need for good storytelling these days and with the intense competition from streamers, I think RisingStories will provide such a wonderful platform for Asian screenwriters to learn from the best in the business so their talents can be discovered.” , he told Justin Ang from the Singapore IMDA, who also attended.

“RisingStories 2023 represents a unique co-production opportunity. Together with Studio 76 and other partners from Taiwan and South Korea, we will focus on bringing the next generation of original stories to the global content market. This edition is also open to submissions in English. And as producers of English language content, we’re excited to welcome a wider range of great stories that can resonate with audiences around the world,” said Lee Thean-jeen, Managing Director of Weiyu Films.
