The American Film Market has signed a new multiyear deal with the Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel to host the market through 2008.
The 25th edition of AFM will be held Nov. 3-10; more than 250 companies have already registered.
AFM also has set dates for the next four years: Nov. 2-9, 2005; Nov. 1-8, 2006; Oct. 31-Nov. 7, 2007; and Nov. 5-12, 2008.
“The Loews and the city of Santa Monica have truly become the home of the AFM,” said Jonathan Wolf, exec VP of the Independent Film & Television Alliance (formerly AFMA) and managing director of the AFM. “The worldwide response to the November market has been terrific.”
