The PFM is the only business-to-business event of its kind in the UK which supports experienced and emerging filmmakers with projects across all budget levels and languages with their need to gain production finance, access to international sales and distribution and meet new financiers in the international marketplace. At the same time PFM offers international financiers access to exciting upcoming projects and producer talent.
As such the PFM appeals to a wide audience of film professionals and unlike other markets offers increased opportunities that go beyond local subsidy and bi-lateral co-production.
Since the pilot of PFM and Micro Market, over 100 films that have attended the markets are now completed and companies have benefitted directly from attendance. PFM and its Micro Market strand have helped to forge countless long-term business connections between producers and financiers and delegates have paid overwhelming testimony to the strategic role the markets play in the annual film calendar.
The 2017 edition will bring more than 200 producers, financiers and new forms of investment together over a two-day period at the Grange Tower Bridge Hotel in the City of London.
In addition to a keynote address, workshops/training and networking events, the PFM and its Micro Market strand will be tabling more than 1000 face-to-face pitch meetings between film producers/filmmaking teams and financiers (as well as 300+ financier-to-financier meetings during the main PFM) over the course of the market.
The dates of the 11th edition of the event will be announced in May during the Cannes Film Festival.
