Rotterdam Cinemart 2019
January 27, 2019 @ 8:00 am - January 30, 2019 @ 5:00 pm CET
After the project selection is completed, the CineMart staff creates a detailed overview of all selected projects. On the basis of this digital dossier, CineMart guests can choose up to 5 projects of their interest beforehand, with the possibility to request more on-site. Both the project teams and mentors will assess these meetings requests, and will also have the possibility to request meetings with CineMart guests in return. The emphasis of the meetings will be on finding the right creative and financial partners. Meetings between festivals, markets, (regional) funds and CineMart projects will only be planned by request of the project team.
The CineMart staff provides a tailor-made schedule for both project teams and CineMart guests respectively. A one-to-one with the project teams now has variable time slots depending on what both representatives and guests need and can offer. With the refocus of the co-production market, a different way of presenting the projects is introduced. During the CineMart Spotlight event, all projects are presented publicly, which will be open to everyone with a CineMart badge. There will be a possibility to request additional meetings after the Spotlight event.
CineMart is a by invitation only market. The list of industry delegates attending CineMart as part of IFFR Pro, is carefully reviewed each year in order to ensure that the attending industry can contribute to the projects in the CineMart selection. The CineMart delegates are co-producers, sales agents, distributors, broadcasters and potential financiers. CineMart-accredited guests are provided with the new IFFR PRO Projects publication with details on all projects and talent presented at IFFR Pro Days; including CineMart, BoostNL, VR and Rotterdam Lab. CineMart badge holders can request a limited number of meetings with selected CineMart projects. Invitations are sent out by the end of November.
