Film London Production Finance Market Ones To Watch
Date posted: 01.10.2019
Taking place over two days (7-8 October), Film London's Production Finance Market (PFM) will facilitate over 800 face-to-face meetings between UK and international producers and financiers to foster relationships and source financing for new projects, and this year sees strengthened ties to BFI London Film Festival (LFF).
New for 2019 - PFM and LFF are proud to introduce a spotlight focus on new projects within the market. 'Ones to Watch' will showcase four exciting new projects in development, co-selected by Film London and the LFF:
· The Panopticon to be directed by Jim Loach, produced by Lindsay McGee and Alysia Maciejowska and executive produced by Camilla Bray
· The Grimoire to be directed by Ali Cook and produced by Ross Williams
· SUWO to be directed by Matt Kay and produced by Rachel Wexler
· The Sound of Family to be directed by Jacob Proud and Greg Hardes and produced by Madeleine Sanderson.
PFM accepts film projects with budget over €1m and the New Talent strand offers new and emerging filmmakers the chance to connect with potential financiers for projects budgeted at €1m and under. Two projects from each strand have been selected as Ones to Watch.
In addition to attending the market and meeting with financiers, the selected Ones to Watch will receive a bespoke package of support from the BFI and from Film London partners Kodak and Moneypenny Production Solutions including training, invitations to networking events and stock and processing discounts. They will also receive annual membership to the film financing platform Filmarket Hub, as well as an enhanced listing in a specially created showcase section on their website.
The PFM is supported by the Mayor of London, the Department for International Trade and the BFI, awarding funds from the National Lottery. Market attendance is by invitation only. Find out more here.
