Many thanks for your interest in applying as a financier to the Production Finance Market and/or its Micro Market strand.
While the main PFM will represent feature film projects with a minimum budget of €1m or higher the Micro Market strand will showcase low-budget projects with a maximum production budget of €1m or below (micro budget).
The PFM and its Micro Market strand have 10 main categories of financiers:
Mature international production and finance companies committed to co- producing/financing international films (high, medium and low budget) with the UK and European partners.
Film funds from the UK, Europe and where appropriate, other international territories.
Private equity funds and investors from the UK and abroad, including hedge fund representatives.
Banks active in the film financing sector.
Screen agencies or other public funding bodies with financial schemes; and the UK national film bodies and Regional Screen Agencies that have active production financing schemes.
International film sales companies.
Leading international and single territory distributors and broadcasters committed to film financing.
Post and Facilities houses interested in offering in kind equity deals, match funding, and deferred.
Music Licensing, Legal firms and Marketing companies offering in kind and equity collaboration and advice to low/micro budget film projects.
VOD Platforms looking to acquire micro budget work.
If you wish to apply for both the PFM and its Micro Market strand, two separate applications are required. It is not possible to attend both the main PFM and its Micro Market strand as a single company representative. Two company representatives have to split their attendance across both market strands.
Submissions to the Production Finance Market and the Micro Market are now closed
