IFP, Filmmaker‘s publisher, announced today the 150 films, series, digital and audio projects to be showcased at the Project Forum this September. The Project Forum, says IFP, is “the only international co-production market in the U.S. featuring stories for multiple platforms and hosting over 3,000 pre-scheduled artist & industry meetings dedicated to moving those projects forward. In addition, IFP Week presents a multi-day slate of talks, public screenings and events celebrating bold and singular storytelling in all its forms. Approximately 300 directors, writers, producers, executive producers and other creators will attend the event this year to pitch their projects to a wide range of industry.” This year’s mix takes in both narrative and nonfiction works, both features and series.

I couldn’t be more excited to be a part of this year’s event for what promises to be an unforgettable week.”

The slate was curated by IFP’s full-time program staff, including Milton Tabbot, Senior Director of Programming and Charlotte Reekers, Senior Program Manager, Non-Fiction and Fiscal Sponsorship (for Spotlight on Documentaries) and Zach Mandinach, Director of Narrative Programming, and Gabriele Capolino, Senior Manager, Episodic and International Programming (for No Borders).
