Industry Registration Now Open for Independent Film Week

For the past thirty-two years, Independent Film Week (formerly IFP Market) has been a one-of-a-kind event that has brought the international filmmaking community to New York City to celebrate, advocate and introduce new voices on the independent scene.

IFP’s objective is to create a destination where the community of individuals involved with independent film can annually convene – from the emerging filmmakers and established producers selected for their strong new projects to the individuals from companies, festivals and organizations aimed at helping the work get made and ultimately seen by public audiences.

Independent Film Week is: 
Project Forum: the oldest forum in the U.S. for the discovery of new projects in development and new voices on the independent film scene. Project Forum consists of the Emerging Narrative (screenplays from emerging writer/directors), No Borders International Co-Production Market (screenplays represented by established producers with some financing in place), Independent Filmmaker Labs (documentary and narrative features in post-production), and Spotlight on Documentaries (documentary feature works-in-progress) programs.

Independent Filmmaker Forum: workshops, discussions and case-studies providing filmmakers and film lovers access to the innovators and icons of independent films. 

Festival Forum: the leading gathering of international and U.S. film festival programmers. 

Sneak Preview Screening Series: where IFP alumni filmmakers introduce new works to industry, fellow filmmakers, and the movie-going public.
