Applications for this year’s MIFF 37° South Market, close this Friday 17 June, so get yours in now!
MIFF 37° South Market will run during the opening weekend of the Melbourne International Film Festival, from August 4-7, 2022.
Organisers are promising a greater number of talks, seminars and panels, as well as revamped and expanded strands, reports if.com.au.
Some highlights are the ‘Bridging the Gap’ meetings which connect producers with script-stage project to financiers, and the ‘Breakthru Screenings’ strand, where screen content buyers view completed films seeking sales/distribution.
The ‘Books at MIFF’ strand, which sees publishers pitch manuscripts to producers for screen adaptation, will be held on the first day of the market, August 4.
The ‘PostScript&Direct (PS&D)’ module, which connects writers and directors with producers to grow their contacts and generate interest in their work and skills, returns in an expanded format – running over two afternoons of meetings, networking events and discussion panels. Eligibility has been expanded to include both web series creatives and development executives from major production companies.
