Occurring around the opening weekend of MIFF, the invite-only market draws together selected Australasian producers with national and international financing (sales agents, distributors) guests in the opening weekend of MIFF. MIFF 37ºSouth Market is Australia's only film co-financing market to occur in the context of a festival.

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
