List of films
The Independent Feature Project has announced its slate of 35 works for the seventh annual No Borders co-production market, which will take place at the Tribeca Grand Hotel during the IFP Market, Sept. 30-Oct. 4.
Goal of the invite-only program is to match indie projects with buyers, investors and agents.
“Through our solid relationship with our partners on the program and through our own solicitation process, No Borders aspires to bring together a slate of projects each year which the IFP believes stand a fighting chance in the international arena,” IFP exec director Michelle Byrd said.
Accepted projects consist of 12 documentary works-in-progress and 23 scripts from the U.S. and abroad (virtually all of which are English-lingo).
Slate includes works by Chris Curling and Phil Robertson (“My Son the Fanatic”), Diana Elbaum (“Lumumba”), Richard Johns (“Shadow of the Vampire”), Paul Mezey (“La Ciudad,” “Spring Forward”), Tim Perell (“Jump Tomorrow,” “World Traveler”) and Andrea Sperling (“The Doom Generation”).
