Lift-Off Representation at the American Film Market 2019

This year we are inviting our Intermediate and Professional Members to submit projects for us to represent at the American Film Market 2019. We will be meeting with sales agents, producers and VOD platforms to find the perfect match for your projects. We will be selecting multiple projects over the next coming months.

Selected projects

1. Why are Lift-Off doing this?

Our aim is to build relationships between the filmmakers, sales agents and distributors, with the sole focus of getting the filmmakers in front of the professionals. After all, no one can sell a project better than the creator! Many sales agents keep tracking documents, listing the creatives they want to keep a close eye on and build relationships with. We know the Lift-Off members deserve to be on those lists, and our goal is to put you on their radar.

2. What success have we had in the past?

Lift-Off have had multiple projects picked up by sales agents in the past, one example being feature documentary 'Ken Foster' dir. by Josh Laner. We represented Josh at AFM a couple of years ago and introduced him to Devil Works. The artistic synergy between the company and Josh spurred Devil Works to sign a deal there and then! Ken Foster can now be seen on multiple VOD platforms. Although this quick turn around is rare, it is this type of relationship we want to build for all our filmmakers within the Network Members' platform.

3. What commission are Lift-Off charging?

This is a service we are offering completely free of charge, as a key benefit for our Intermediate and Professional Members. Any deal made is between the filmmakers and sales agents / distributor. Lift-Off are not taking commission.

4. What other film markets do you attend?

Every year, weattend all of the major film markets across the globe. From Cannes to the Berlinale, Lift-Off represent films on an international level and aim to get our Members' work as widely presented as possible.

What do we need from you?

At this stage an application will suffice, including a brief synopsis of the project. Any necessary links can be provided. We will be in touch closer to the time if we feel your work aligns with what awe can take to the Market this year.
