New Zealand producers are invited to apply for this year's International Financing Forum (IFF) - a feature film co-financing event at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Eligible applicants must have at a minimum, one full producer credit (not executive producer credit) on a theatrically released feature by a recognisable distributor, and a market orientated project in development that requires international co-production and/or financing partners. The NZ Film Commission is able to offer Producer's Market assistance for up to two participants to attend IFF in 2010. Producers must apply directly to IFF, approaching the NZFC for financial assistance only once an acceptance letter has been received.
