IFP sets Film Week roster

Foster's 'Cockeyed' on tap for Indepedent event

The Jodie Foster-directed “Cockeyed” and Fred Schepisi’s “The Secret River” are among the pics on the IFP’s roster for Independent Film Week, to be held Sept. 19-24 in Gotham.

Also included among the 116 projects are documentary “Earth Camp One” by Jennie Livingston (“Paris Is Burning”) and “Fame High” by Scott Hamilton (“The Garden”).

Invitees participate in one of three sections: Emerging Narrative, for first-time feature directors in post-production seeking representation, funding and festival invites; No Borders Intl. Co-Production Market, for producers with partial funding who are seeking additional partners; and Spotlight on Documentaries, for filmmakers in search of financial partners, distribution and festival invites.

In addition, IFP announced new partnerships with B-Side, a tech company that provides film festival websites with audience ratings and reviews, and the Good Pitch, a forum produced by the Channel 4 Britdoc Foundation to create powerful alliances around social-purpose films.

IFP also announced Monday the expansion of its partnership with the Sundance Institute. Ten projects and filmmakers chosen from the 2009 Sundance Directors Lab and Sundance Creative Producing Initiative have been accepted into the No Borders section of the IFP Project Forum.
