MIFF 37ºSouth Market is the exclusive Australia/NZ partner of the Production Finance Market (PFM) in London. This alliance offers three places each year at the PFM for MIFF 37ºSouth Market producers who are selected by the sales agents in attendance at MIFF 37ºSouth Market. These places are the only guaranteed Australia/NZ places at the October PFM. The PFM, in turn, has an alliance with the Rome International Film Festival's New Cinema Network (NCN) and Australia/NZ producers at PFM are eligible for NCN consideration.
Comprising presentations, workshops and screenings, Accelerator Lab is a fast-track for invited filmmakers to develop their skills, craft and industry contacts on an international level.
