CineMart 2005 unveiled 47 projects that will take part in its 22nd edition, which will be held in conjunction with the 34th International Film Festival Rotterdam January 30 – February 3. This year’s line up includes new film work from established independent filmmakers such as John Sayles (“Silver City”), who will bring his latest “Honeydripper” to CineMart, as well as David MacKenzie (“Young Adam”) who will go to the Dutch city with “White Male Heart.”

Also taking part this year are filmmakers who were included in previous festival editions, and were supported by the IFFR’s Hubert Bals Fund or had participated in the festival’s Tiger Awards Competition. Among the returnees are Albanian director Fatmi Koçi (“Year Zero”) with “Man and Woman,” France/Chad filmmaker Mahamet Saleh Haroun (“Abouna”) with “Darratt” and British filmmaker Dom Rotheroe (“My Brother Tom”) with “Exhibit A.”

CineMart has presented a number of films, which later screened theatrically around the world, including such titles as Peter Mullan‘s “The Magdalene Sisters,” “Springtime in a Small Town” by Tian Zhuangzhuang, Pjer Zalica‘s “Fuse,” “Father and Son” by Alexander Sokurov, “29 Palms” by Bruno Dumont, Daniel Burman‘s “Lost Embrace,” and Apichatpong Weerasethakul‘s “Tropical Malady.”

“The record number of 539 entries provided us with a good overview of the current, very lively market situation for small and medium budget films,” commented CineMart director Ido Abram in a statement. “The overall high quality of this 47-strong CineMart 2005 selection and the expected presence of some 800 buyers and financiers makes Rotterdam the ideal industry platform at the beginning of the new year.”
