Calling all filmmakers, directors, producers, screenwriters and film students! The HOOQ Filmmakers Guild is back for the second year to seek out compelling stories told through a series format that everyone would love to watch, but no one dares to make. Tell the stories that need to be told but haven’t found the right home yet. Share your concept and be 1 of 5 filmmakers to turn your idea into reality with a grant of USD 30,000 to produce a pilot! One of the pilots will then be commissioned into a full season as a HOOQ Original Series! Tell your story. Join the HOOQ Filmmakers Guild.
Entries will be accepted from Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, India, Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Cambodia.
