Registration is Now Live for IFP Independent Film Week!


Although there are numerous industry events throughout the year, what makes IFP Independent Film Week unique is that it’s the only place in the U.S. where industry leaders gain access to over 140 new projects first before they are discovered at
festivals or by general audiences.


The projects participating in the Project Forum range in budget from micro-budgeted indies (<$500,000) to $5M star-driven material. While the majority
of documentary and narrative projects showcased are U.S-based (85%), the remaining 15% of projects are international works-in-progress. 45% of all projects
originate from outside New York and Los Angeles, representing talent from outside the traditional film hubs.

Each year during the event, more than 3,000 individual one-on-one meetings take place between filmmakers and representatives from more than 200 company representatives and 50 festival
programmers.
