. IFP, through its partnership with Latin American Training Center, will select up to five American independent producers to participate in their Rio Market October 7-October 18, 2011. The IFP – LATC partnership provides direct opportunities for filmmakers, film professionals, and producers to participate in festivals, markets and meetings in the region.
The Rio Market is a week-long program which runs concurrently with the Rio International Film Festival. Conceived to boost international co-productions and encourage production in Latin America, the IFP fellowship with LATC will be offering many formal and informal networking opportunities specific to the IFP delegation throughout the three days listed above to assist independent producers in finding partners for their projects and expanding their international contacts.
Open to emerging and established producers and filmmakers, the Fellowship will cover the cost of full program registration fees and 4 nights hotel accommodations for the selected producers, but participants must cover their own airfare to attend.
Applicants should have at least one feature-film producing credit and be a current IFP member. Applicants should clearly state why they are interested in participating by citing either a history of Latin American co-production experience OR current projects in their slate that require Latin American and/or Spanish Language co-production partners. Documentary and Narrative producers are welcome.
Those interested in applying must be IFP members. If you – or someone you know – is interested in consideration for the program should apply with a one-page letter of interest describing the project(s) that would be presented and a resume to Amy Dotson, Deputy Director, IFP, at
firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, August 9th.
