NEW YORK — The Independent Feature Project has announced that it will present, for a second time, a sidebar of new American independent films at the European Film Market, which runs concurrently with the Berlin Intl. Film Festival (Feb. 11-22).
“AIM: American Independents at the Market” will present 10 films, selected by a jury whose members represent the IFP, the Assn. of Independent Video and Filmmakers, the Film Society of Lincoln Center and New York Foundation of the Arts.
“The slate of films in our 1997 AIM showcase served to refocus international attention on the range and strength of U.S. independents, and our goal at the ’98 Market will be to again present a good cross-section of new work,” said Michelle Byrd, IFP exec director.
AIM is one element in IFP’s “IFP Abroad: American Independents in Berlin” program, sponsored by Eastman Kodak. In addition, the IFP will continue to be the representative of U.S. independents in Berlin.
The application deadline for AIM is Nov. 28. Applications and guidelines are available online at http://www.ifp.org.
