In the Spotlight this week is the 4th Annual CANNES INDEPENDENT FILM FESTIVAL (CIFF), showcasing independent cinema in the South of France, and providing filmmakers the opportunity to screen in Cannes during the time when the Cannes Film Festival takes place.

Unaffiliated with the Cannes Film Festival, CIFF seeks to be an equalizer for indie artists, leveling the playing field and offering a unique opportunity for filmmakers to get their projects both shown and sold. CIFF presents its selections as part of the Marché du Film, the international film marketplace where films are bought and sold during Cannes. Several films from CIFF 2010 were sold in the Marché du Film and went on to international releases, including RED WHITE & BLUE and PARADOX.

CIFF filmmakers will be assisted in promoting and selling their projects at the Marketplace, and are invited to attend marketing and sales courses, network with industry players, and host launch and promotion parties in conjunction with CIFF. Some participating filmmakers will be extended accommodations in addition to travel and airfare allowances. Sponsored prizes valued at over $50,000 USD will be distributed, and 11 category winners will be recognized.


UPCOMING DEADLINE
February 25, 2011 - Late Deadline
Upgraded projects save $5 on this deadline

MISSION AND OBJECTIVE
CIFF
showcases emerging talent and promotes low-budget and independent films and screenplays to the industry during the time when the Cannes Film Festival takes place, although the event is not affiliated with the Cannes Film Festival (Festival de Cannes).

MORE ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
With an emphasis on new talent, discovery, and innovation, CIFF's vibrant program of films and events combines a commitment to indie filmmaking ideals with a sound understanding of their possibilities in the marketplace.
