Australian producers with market-ready feature film projects are invited to apply to Screen Australia for Independent Filmmaker Project’s (IFP) No Borders Co-Production Market 2013, a film financing forum that takes place during the annual Independent Film Week in New York City in September.
Screen Australia and IFP have again partnered to enable selection of up to three Australian projects for this prestigious US co-production market. Focusing on the discovery of 45 new projects in development from established producers, the program is open to Australian producers who have scripts with 20 per cent financing in place. Producers will be selected on the strength and artistic merits of their projects.
No Borders is the oldest and most prominent co-production market in the US for narrative projects and provides producers with the chance to secure financing for their feature projects through one-on-one meetings, informal roundtable discussions and networking events.
Once selected, IFP will provide Australian producers with professional pitching and industry consultation prior to participation. Please see the No Borders guidelines on the IFP website.
Screen Australia will shortlist projects before final selection by the No Borders IFP team. The submission deadline for applications to Screen Australia has been extended to Friday 3 May 2013. If eligible under Screen Australia’s International Festival and Marketplace Travel Program, applicants may also apply for a travel grant. IFP will provide accommodation during No Borders.
The No Borders Co-Production Market will be held 15–19 September 2013.
Guidelines and an application form are available from the Screen Australia website.
