Discover New Talent & Projects – First
What is it?
A curated selection of 150 fiction & non-fiction features and series projects in development through post production from around the world. It is a must attend event for financiers, distributors, producers, executives, and festival programmers to access bold, original talent early.
As the oldest and only co-production market in the US, we curate 3,000 customized meetings for executives during IFP Week’s Project Forum. Additional opportunities for discovery occur at IFP’s Filmmaker Lab Showcase, SAGindie’s Reading Series and IFP’s Meet the Programmer Meetings.
Why IFP Week?
IFP has played a vital role in launching the careers of now-established directors including Derek Cianfrance (Blue Valentine), Moira Demos & Laura Ricciardi (Making a Murderer), Robert Eggers (The Witch), Ciro Guerra (Embrace of the Serpent), Barry Jenkins (Moonlight), David Lowery (A Ghost Story), Laura Poitras (Citizenfour), Dee Rees (Mudbound), Denis Villeneuve (Sicario), Roger Ross Williams (Life, Animated), and Benh Zeitlin (Beasts of the Southern Wild).
