The PFM is the only business-to-business event of its kind in the UK which supports experienced and emerging filmmakers with projects across all budget levels and languages with their need to gain production finance, access to international sales and distribution and meet new financiers in the international marketplace. At the same time PFM offers international financiers access to exciting upcoming projects and producer talent.
As such the PFM appeals to a wide audience of production professionals and unlike other markets offers increased opportunities that go beyond local subsidy and bi-lateral co-production.
This year the PFM will include TV Drama to the line up. This has come as a direct response to feedback from financiers from the last few years and illustrates the importance of TV Drama within the production community. On top of this we will also be selecting up to 10 TV Drama projects to be fast tracked to the prestigious Content London Drama conference in London in November, an exclusive benefit from attending the PFM.
Since the pilot of PFM, over 100 films that have attended the markets are now completed and companies have benefitted directly from attendance. PFM and its New Talent Strand have helped to forge countless long-term business connections between producers and financiers and delegates have paid overwhelming testimony to the strategic role the markets play in the annual film calendar.
The 2018 edition will bring producers, financiers and new forms of investment together over a two-day period at the Grange Tower Bridge Hotel in the City of London.
In addition to a keynote address, workshops/training and networking events, the PFM and its New Talent Strand will be tabling hundreds of face-to-face pitch meetings between producers/filmmaking teams and financiers, as well as additional financier-to-financier meetings during the main PFM.
Applications for Film London's Production Finance Market and New Talent Strand are now closed.
The PFM and its New Talent Strand will take place from 16-17 October 2018.
