As the sole U.S. Partner Organization for the Cannes Producer’s Network, IFP is pleased to announce its 2010 IFP Cannes Producer’s Network Fellows:
Howard Gertler (Shortbus), Paul Miller (Snow Angels), Anita Ondine & Lance Weiler (Head Trauma), Mike Ryan (Choke), Susan Stover (Laurel Canyon), and Ron Simons (Night Catches Us).
IFP annually selects and sponsors attendance for up to six independent producers to participate in the Producer’s Network’s prestigious week-long immersion program. Running concurrently with Cannes International Film Festival, the Producer’s Network is held May 13-19, 2010 and is specifically designed to build up the international networks and share expertise on the international production, financing and packaging marketplace.
“Through this initiative, IFP is proud to partner with Cannes Producer’s Network to continue to provide vital opportunities for talented U.S. and international producers to collaborate,” says Amy Dotson, Deputy Director.
“Applications to this Fellowship were up 50% from previous years and we were thrilled to receive so many applications from talented IFP members across the country.”
For further opportunities for U.S. producers: Call for Entry is open for IFP’s No Borders Co-Production Market. Please see www.independentfilmweek.com for criteria, applications and more information.
