Organizers of the upcoming International Film Festival Rotterdam (January 21 – February 1, 2004) have announced the list of 47 projects that have been accepted to the 21st CineMart co-production market. A number of high-profile filmmakers are bringing new projects to the market, including Lou Ye, Catherine Breillat, Kim Ki-Duk, Bent Hamer, Pen-ej Ratanaruang, Thom Fitzgerald, Goran Paskaljevic, Otar Iosseliani, and Moshen Makhmalbaf. Previous Tiger Award winners from the festival who will be in the CineMart include Dagur Kari, Santiago Loza, Maria Speth, Sinisa Dragin, Andre van der Hout, and Jeong Jae-Eun.

“With this promising line up of film projects by established filmmakers as well as projects by new talents from all continents, we are looking forward to a very strong 21st CineMart,” said CineMart director Ido Abram in a prepared statement. “We feel that this selection connects extremely well with the character and profile of both the festival program and with the IFFR’s Hubert Bals Fund activities.”

Among those films that have been presented at CineMart in past years are Peter Mullan’s “The Magdalene Sisters,” Tian Zhuangzhuang’s “Springtime in a Small Town,” Peter Zalica’s “Fuse,” Alexander Sokurov’s “Father and Son,” Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s “Bright Future,” and Bruno Dumont’s “29 Palms.”

CineMart annually invites a select group of co-producers, buyers, sales agents and distributors to meet with the participants.
