Aside from the Rights Roundup and the U.S. Distributors A - Z (Both are on your right in my Blog Roll), here are some more Numbers. Why are numbers so reassuring to us?  


Marché registration up 9% this year

With 9,500 registered less than 10 days before the start of the Marché du Film, we are pleased to announce a 9% increase of the number of participants, with visible growth from Asia and Latin America. Buyers are on the rise as well with 1,900 so far.

As for the films, a wide variety of genres comprise the 4,300 titles presented this year, 2,500 of which are already completed. In particular, documentary films have seen a notable increase reaching 14% of the total, including some 200 titles that will be presented at the Doc Corner.


Some more numbers:

12 gay movies in the festival including 3 transsexual dramas and a Japanese gay musical.

8 movies by ARTE
