IFP has announced its 2013 slate of 163 films in development selected for its Project Forum at Independent Film Week, which runs September 15-19 at New York's Lincoln Center.

"The event brings the international film and media community to New York City to advance new projects and support the future of storytelling by nurturing the work of both emerging and established independent artists and filmmakers," IFP explained in a press release. "Through the Project Forum, creatives connect with the financiers, executives, influencers and decision-makers in film, television, new media and cross-platform storytelling that can help them complete their latest works and connect with audiences." 

Featured works at the 2013 Independent Film Week include filmmakers and content creators ranging from Academy Award winners Louie Psihoyos ("The Cove") and Cynthia Wade ("Freeheld") to web-series innovators such as Mesh Flinders ("Lonelygirl 5") and Thom Woodley ("The Burg").
 
“For 35 years, IFP has promoted and served the independent film community and we’re thrilled to be able to continue to do so with an outstanding slate of both U.S. and international projects for this year’s Independent Film Week,” said Joana Vicente, Executive Director of IFP, in a statement.  “This year, we’re heavily focusing on innovative filmmakers and creators who are pushing the boundaries of our medium and making storytelling more accessible than ever.”
 
IFP’s Project Forum has had a prolific history in the independent community supporting independent filmmakers at critical stages in their development processes. Formerly Independent Feature Film Market (IFFM), the Project Forum program has championed the early work of Charles Burnett, Todd Haynes, Mira Nair, Michael Moore, Joel and Ethan Coen, Kevin Smith, and Todd Solondz. In recent years, it has also played a role in launching the first films of many of the independent scene's most notable new faces including Derek Cianfrance ("Blue Valentine"), Debra Granik ("Down to the Bone"), Miranda July ("Me and You and Everyone We Know"), Dee Rees ("Pariah"), and Benh Zeitlin ("Beasts of the Southern Wild' ).
 
Under the curatorial leadership of Deputy Director/Head of Programming Amy Dotson & Senior Director of Programming Milton Tabbot, 163 U.S. and international projects have been selected for the 2013 Project Forum, evenly split between documentary and narrative features. Doc and feature projects hail from throughout the U.S., Europe, and Canada, as well Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Southeast Asia, South America, and the Middle East.
