Production Finance Market 2023 and New Talent Strand open for applications!

PFM is Film London’s annual feature film market, taking place in October in association with BFI London Film Festival (this year the market runs from 10-11 Oct, at the Thistle Hotel in Marble Arch). Filmmakers can apply with feature projects, and successful applicants take part in an intensive series of one-to-one meetings with financiers (including broadcasters, investors, sales agents, distributors and public funders).

The New Talent strand welcomes applications from filmmaking teams embarking on making their first or second feature. (Note: this year, they’ve removed the €1million budget ceiling.) In addition to giving the selected teams a day of one-to-one meetings with financiers, they offer an intensive Prep Week full of valuable training on pitching, financing and the world of independent film.

For filmmakers interested in applying to the New Talent Strand, Film London are holding some Zoom roundtables in the coming weeks (June 8th, 22nd & 29th) at 4pm. Production & Development Executive Sanj Krishnan will be there to tell filmmakers more about the market and application process and answer any questions. You can register here.

There’s more information on Film London’s website about the PFM and New Talent strand.

And filmmakers can apply for the market here (deadline is Wednesday 6th July at 5pm)
