About the AFM®
The business of
independent motion picture production and distribution – a truly collaborative
process – reaches its peak every year at the AFM, when more than 8,000 industry
leaders converge in Santa Monica for eight days of deal-making, screenings,
conferences, premieres, networking and parties.
Participants come from more than 70 countries and include acquisition
and development executives, agents, attorneys, directors, distributors,
festival directors, financiers, film commissioners, producers, writers, the
world's press and all those who provide services to the motion picture industry.
Founded in 1981, the
AFM quickly became the premiere global marketplace where Hollywood's
decision-makers and trendsetters all gather under one roof. Unlike a film festival, the AFM is a
marketplace where production and distribution deals are closed. In just eight days, more than $800 million in
deals will be sealed - on both completed films and those in every stage of
development and production - making the AFM the must-attend industry event.
The AFM is produced
by the Independent Film & Television Alliance® (IFTA®),
the trade association representing the world's producers and distributors of
independent motion pictures and television programs. More information is online at www.IFTA-online.org.
