CineMart, the International Film Festival Rotterdam's (IFFR) co-production market has made their picks for the crop of projects that will be presented to over 800 possible co-financiers from January 30 - February 2, 2011 in Rotterdam. The 33 selected projects were waded from 434 submitted entries, and include projects from renowned filmmakers such as Jan Švankmajer, Carlos Reygadas, Alex van Warmerdam, Andrei Zvyagintsev and Sergei Loznitza, as well as feature film debuts, films by competition filmmakers from preceding IFFR editions, and films that received Hubert Bals Fund contributions.

"It’s always an interesting challenge to create a balanced selection that combines new work from established directors with first features by new talent from such a large number of often striking entries," said CineMart manager Marit van den Elshout in a statement. "This year, we are very pleased to present a large number of second and third film projects from ascendant filmmakers.
We aim for geographical spread and a good balance between makers, artistic content, financial situation and whether a project can actually find partners in Rotterdam. It has become a very diverse mix of projects featuring idiosyncratic filmmakers from over 25 different countries and I expect them to generate a great deal of interest."
