The PFM, that is held in association with the ongoing BFI London Film Festival (7-18 October), will have senior executives from Endgame Entertainment, Lionsgate, Pinewood Group, Head Gear, International Film Partners, BAC Film and The Match Factory attending. More than 900 producer-financier meetings and 300 financier-financier meetings will take place over two days.
Adrian Wootton, Chief Executive of Film London and the British Film Commission said, “As ever, competition to attend the Market was fierce, and I think we’ve selected a perfect mix of exciting international projects and big-name financiers to deliver the quality and energy for which the PFM is renowned. The Market forms a key part of our work to ensure London is a world-class film business centre, and I’d like to thank our principal supporters the Mayor of London and Creative Europe for sharing our ambition, along with our funders UKTI and the BFI without whom, the PFM would simply not be possible.”
Producers selected for this year’s PFM include Cooper Waterman of Waterman Entertainment (The Brave Little Toaster), Ilann Girard of Arsam International (Cunningham 3D), Paul Raphael of Starfield Productions (A Guide To Second Date Sex) and Paul Laikin of Unanico (One Night in Hell).
