Helena MacKenzie, head of International at Film London, said,“For UK sales agents LUFF is vital – it is their event, a dedicated avenue for them to market their products to an audience of buyers that would otherwise be difficult to penetrate. Being in London it is the ideal location, the home of sales agents with the best screening facilities and an opportunity for international buyers to easily visit the world’s third busiest film production centre after Los Angeles and New York.”

Natalie Brenner, Ealing Studio’s Head of Sales said, “We’re delighted with how From Time to Time has turned out and rather than have it crowded out in the Cannes market we want to give it a great platform at LUFF. This will mean a much more relaxed yet focussed environment where it will attract many of the distributors we already work with or that we’re keen to do business with.”

LUFF 2009 is backed by Film London, the UK Film Council, the BFI, Film Export UK, UK Trade & Investment and the London Development Agency.
