A few of us have been working on a project which I think should be of great interest for U.S. filmmakers to connect internationally at a time when U.S. box office represents about 30% of the total market. And this November 15-20, 2011 when the festival takes place, I have the honor to be on the jury! Find out more on their website.

The 2nd American Film Festival in Wroclaw (pronounced vrotslove), Poland is planning a new initiative: They are taking American productions in progress which need final financing to finish the post, sound, etc. and hooking them up the producers with European financiers, distributors and sales agents. Press here for more information on the works in progress sidebar.

Heading this inititave is Adeline Monzier, a French woman living in N.Y. who started Europa Distribution, a media funded initiative of independent distributors in Europe who will all be at this event whose description is below. (See my past blogs on Europa Distribution and its strong foothold in Europe.

The American Film Festival (AFF) is the first film event in Eastern Europe solely devoted to the works of contemporary and classic American cinema. With the region emerging as one of the most expansive for future growth, the Festival will provide audience members with an exhaustive sampling of the highlights of classic and contemporary American independent cinema.

The Festival will also develop a marketplace for the distribution of these works. The Festival is also committed to educating the public and industry about the wide scope of American film that encompasses the best of Hollywood cinema and the independent auteurs and up-and-coming film artists. The inaugural edition of the AFF (http://www.americanfilmfestival.pl) was held from October 20 to 24, 2010 in the cultural heritage city of Wroclaw, Poland. The event is organized by the New Horizons Association, which also presents the ERA NEW HORIZONS International Film Festival (www.enh.pl), acknowledged by the Polish Film Institute as the most important film event in the country. The Festival is also linked to the pioneering Polish distribution company GutekFilm (http://www.gutekfilm.pl/english) which is an industry leader in bringing quality American independent and international cinema to Poland.

The Festival is being held under the patronage of the Ambassador of the United States of America to Poland, in co-operation with the City of Wroclaw, and supported by the Polish Ministry of Culture and National Heritage.
