IFP Week, a signature program of the Independent Feature Project (IFP) is the only multiple-platform, international co-production market for projects in the United States. Taking place at IFP’s Made in NY Media Center and nearby venues in New York City, IFP Week 2018 spans the course of 6 days with programs such as the Screen Forward Talks, Meet the Decision Makers, Direct Access, the Rooftop Films Screening Series, What’s Now talks, and immersive installations.

The full week facilitates over 5,000 storyteller/industry meetings, a multi-day conference, film, television and new media screenings, audio listening stations, future-forward panels and special events. Nearly 4,000 filmmakers, series, audio and new media creators, members of the public, and related industry representatives attend annually. IFP is thrilled to celebrate its 40th anniversary with the independent media community this year, with a wide range of public events, screenings, and happenings, which anyone can attend! For more information on these programs and for a schedule, please visit the public events or calendar pages.
