IFP Sets Cutoff For Cannes

The Independent Feature Project has set a March 15 deadline for indie filmmakers to submit films for inclusion in the Cannes Market, the official market at the Cannes Film Festival under the auspices of the American Independents at Cannes.

The American Independents program is run by the IFP, the umbrella organization for American indie filmmakers at Cannes. At the fest, the IFP runs a program of seminars, screenings and social events. Last year, the IFP presented more than 20 films at the market, including Michael Corrente’s “Federal Hill” and Gregory Hines’ “White Man’s Burden.”

The IFP also has set the dates for its 17th Independent Feature Film Market: Sept. 17-24 in and around the Angelika Film Center in Manhattan.

The IFFM is one of the leading showcases for new indie product. Market director Rachel Shapiro said this year’s market will “continue exploring new venues for independent film distribution and exhibition, as well as moving further into the area of development.” The market is expected to screen more than 350 features, short films and works-in-progress.

This year’s IFFM staff includes program director Michelle Byrd, IFP corporate relations director Ken Tabachnick, and associate market director Christie Thomas.
