IFP to restructure co-prod’n market

No Borders to be separate event, limit entries

CANNES — The New York-based Independent Feature Project announced it will restructure and reposition its No Borders co-production market. The market will run at the same time as the IFP market, Sept. 30-Oct. 4 in Gotham, but will be a separate event held at the Tribeca Grand Hotel.

Seeking to draw higher-profile doc and fiction projects, No Borders will limit entries to 30 this year, down from 45 last year, and target mid-career filmmakers instead of the entry-level helmers who generally participate in the IFP market. A richer selection of international projects will be available with the addition of four new presenting partners, according to IFP exec director Michelle Byrd. The new partners are European training institute Ateliers du Cinema Europeen, U.K. org the Film Council, Telefilm Canada and Wallonie Bruxelles Images, which promotes French-speaking Belgian filmmakers.

The 7-year-old No Borders co-production market was modeled on the Rotterdam Film Fest’s CineMart, which was a founding partner of No Borders along with the Sundance Institute and Filmstiftung Nordrhein-Westfalen. More than 60 projects present at No Borders have since been completed, including Jeremy Podeswa’s “The Five Senses,” Nanette Burstein and Brett Morgen’s “On the Ropes” and Josh Aronson’s “Sound and Fury.”
