Applications for 2019 IFP Week will open in March.

We invite all independent artists and creators to join us for IFP Film Week’s diverse slate of events, screenings, meet-ups, and the Screen Forward Conference.


Project Forum

Project Forum is a meetings-driven forum connecting new narrative & documentary projects in development, production, or post to key industry execs interested in identifying projects for development, financing, or distribution.

A primary outcome for all artists is the facilitation of career-spanning relationships with potential financiers, theatrical & online content distributors & platforms, festival programmers, sales & talent agents, collaborators, & others. These invaluable relationships continue well beyond the 5 days of IFP Week. 150 projects are selected each year to the Spotlight on Documentaries and No Borders programs.

Spotlight on Documentaries

For emerging and established video and audio documentarians, this program connects 60+ work-in-progress non-fiction features, series, and audio documentaries with financiers, distributors, broadcasters, sales companies, and festival programmers.

No Borders

The No Borders program offers narrative feature filmmakers, series creators, and audio storytellers the opportunity to attend IFP Week and meet with various members of industry in an effort to help move their projects forward, broaden their networks, and find a level of career sustainability.
