NFVF Call for Applications for Markets and Festivals

The National Film and Video Foundation (NFVF) invites filmmakers to apply for funding for markets and festivals attendance. The applications should be for festivals that have been scheduled to take place between May and July 2011. The applications should reach the NFVF offices on or before the 8th of April 2011.

Markets and festival attendance funding is available to filmmakers that have been invited to participate at festivals, and filmmakers whose films have been accepted at international film festivals. It is also open to those filmmakers who are able to demonstrate that attendance will benefit their company and their project through its presentation at the festival in special screenings or other activities.

The NFVF will be hosting a Sales Event at the Cannes International Film Festival, with the purpose of presenting projects to international buyers, independent filmmakers are requested to submit synopsis of projects they would like to pitch at this event. Materials should also include high-resolution posters of the projects or where possible trailers. Filmmakers should bear in mind that the NFVF reserves the right to select films that qualify to be presented at the event and included in the NFVF catalogue.
