Each year, CineMart invites a select number of directors/producers to present their film projects to co-producers, funds, sales agents, distributors, TV stations and other potential financiers. Over the years, more than 454 CineMart selected films have been completed and launched.
Our international co-production market offers a selection of 25 carefully curated feature film projects – independent art- house films with market potential. CineMart was the first platform of its kind to offer filmmakers the opportunity to launch their ideas to the international film industry and to find the right connections to get their projects financed. CineMart heralds an important start of the 'film year'.
One of CineMart’s trademarks is the highly productive, yet informal atmosphere. In order to maintain such an environment, the number of projects is kept to around 25 and the invitation process is selective. A team of matchmakers/ consultants offer advice on strategy and creating the right connections. The four-day event takes place concurrent with IFFR and shares its location with the festival centre, De Doelen, in the heart of Rotterdam.
