Cannes to host the International Film Finance Marketplace
- European producers are invited to an international film finance seminar during the festival's market
On Sunday 18 May at the Cannes Film Market, part of the Cannes Film Festival, Film London will be hosting the International Film Finance Marketplace, a seminar designed to give European producers an insight into the changing financial landscape of the global film industry and the international marketplace, covering budgets, packaging and new revenue streams.
The seminar will also introduce Film London's Production Finance Market (PFM), presented by its project manager, Angus Finney. A two-day annual market, the PFM connects international producers and financiers to encourage new film-financing relationships. "The strategy is to try to support producers – especially in the UK, but also in Europe – to enable them to gain a better understanding of what financiers are looking for," said Finney in an interview with us (read it here).
Aimed at European producers attending Cannes, the event is free to attend. Anyone can register by mailing here.
