Film marketers jaw on pix

Directors of the major film markets met for the first time at the American Film Market Monday morning, and for the third session since last year’s first meeting at Cannes.

Topics discussed included procedures for simplifying registration, the use of credit cards for exhibitor payments and the emergence of new markets such as Venice and Hong Kong.

“These meetings allow all of us in the business to know how to help our clients and ourselves,” said AFM exec director Tim Kittleson.

Market directors attending included Elena Loyd, director of Mifed; Tulio Galleano an exec with the Fiera di Milano which presents Mifed; Marsilio Marsilli newly appointed head of Fiera international marketing; Midem organization marketing director Rene Perez; Jerome Paillard, director of the Cannes film market; Missy Huger, VP of membership services for the American Film Marketing Assn.; Brady Craine, director of AFM; and Kittleson.

The next session will convene in April at Mip TV.
