IFP ANNOUNCES INTERNATIONAL FELLOWSHIP OPPORTUNITIES FOR PRODUCERS
The Independent Feature Project is now accepting applications for two of its international programs.
The Cannes Producer’s Network, a week-long immersion program, runs concurrently with the Cannes International Film Festival in May. The program is specifically designed for experienced producers looking to build their international networks and share expertise on the international production, financing, and packaging marketplace. Recent participants have included Howard Gertler (Shortbus), Anita Onadine & Lance Weiler (Head Trauma, Pandemic), Mike Ryan (Choke), Susan Stover (Laurel Canyon), and Ron Simons (Gun Hill Road, Night Catches Us).
To apply, please send a resume and one-page letter of interest to John Sylva (firstname.lastname@example.org), by Tuesday, March 6th. Five producers
will be selected to attend the Producers Network and two emerging producers will attend the Producer’s Lab. All applicants must be
IFP members at any level to be considered for the program.
Applications are also open for the 2012 Trans Atlantic Partners Fellowship, an intensive three-week film training program for U.S., Canadian, and European producers seeking co-production/co-venture professional development. The three modules happen throughout the year, first with a week-long session in Berlin this June, then in Halifax this September (with a session that leads directly into Strategic Partners, Canada’s international co-production market) and finally, at Independent Film Week in New York. Previous participants have included Cora Olson and Jennifer Dubin (Good Dick), and Nekisa Cooper (Pariah).
The TAP application is available online here. The deadline to apply is March 21, 2012.
