We are delighted to announce the 12 projects that have been chosen to be represented by the Lift-Off Team at Marché du Film, Cannes 2019.
What's in store for successful applicants?
Successful projects chosen by the Lift-Off Team will be represented at the Marché du Film 2019. We will be meeting with over 50 sales agents, producers, and VOD platforms such as Amazon and Netflix. Through our film festivals, we see hundreds of incredibly talented filmmakers who's work isn't seen beyond the festival circuit. This needs to change. Our aim is to build bridges between talented filmmakers and industry professionals to create relationships that can benefit both parties.
This is an effort which will go beyond just our Cannes initiative. We will also be running a similar application process for all the major film markets later in the year. Again, this will be open to all Intermediate and Professional Network Members.
If you are unsuccessful for this selection, you will still have the opportunity to apply again for future film markets as well as receiving other benefits of the Lift-Off Network.
