IFP's Independent Film Week Project Forum

This came to us from Danielle DiGiacomo,Community Manager, IFP:

Thank you for being a continued supporter and friend of IFP. I am asking for your help in finding filmmakers to participate in IFP’s Independent Film Week Project Forum.

Independent Film Week is the oldest and largest forum in the U.S. for the discovery of new projects in development and new voices on the independent film scene. The Project Forum is a meetings-driven forum connecting filmmakers who have new narrative and documentary projects with key industry executives interested in identifying projects with which to become involved at the financing or distribution stage.

It is qualitatively and quantitatively the best opportunity for an independent filmmaker to connect with industry professionals - including producers, funders, distributors, broadcasters, sales agents and festival programmers. The Project Forum also furthers filmmaker and industry interaction with opportunities for networking at social events throughout the week.

(Recent projects have included: Emily Abt’s Toe to Toe, Courtney Hunt’s Frozen River, Rodney Evans’ Brother to Brother, Nicole Kassell’s The Woodsman, : Laura Poitras’ The Oath, Scott Hamilton Kennedy's The Garden, Rick Goldsmith and Judith Ehrlich’s The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers, Aron Gaudet’s The Way We Get By, Kimberly Reed’s Prodigal Sons, and many more).

We are reaching out to organizations and individuals who we feel would have a constituency well-suited to this program. We would love it if you could get the word out to your community to encourage them to apply to the Project Forum. This can be done either through the following tools: Newsletter or list-serve mention; Dedicated email blast; Blog promotion; or article written.

Please let me know if and how you can help and which blurbs, banners, buttons, etc. you need.

In addition, if you know of any projects that you feel might be of interest to the program, please contact me at dgiacomo@ifp.org. It would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much for all of your continued support. I look forward to seeing you soon.
