The International Film Festival Rotterdam launched CineMart more than 25 years ago as a regular film market. However, it quickly became apparent that there was a greater need for a new kind of platform to present projects looking for additional financing. With that in mind, the IFFR remodelled CineMart as an effective co-production market, the first of its kind. Throughout its history, CineMart has proven to be an integral part of the film industry, providing an indispensable platform to support the realization of new film projects and heralding the start of each new film year. The formula of introducing projects to potential co-producers, sales agents, television buyers, distributors and financiers in one-on-one meetings has proven to be so effective that many festivals have used the same blueprint to create their own co-production markets.
A select number of directors/producers present their feature projects to potential co-producers: January 23 - February 3, 2013.
