SydneysBuzz is no longer only a blog.  Sydney Levine and Peter Belsito are announcing the new website www.SydneysBuzz.com.  "We are returning to our roots and will be offering paid-for reports — at a much lower price than we did during our FilmFinders days", said Sydney Levine. 

Knowing what international sales agents are currently selling -- and to whom -- gives you the advantage. With 11,700 participants from 108 different countries at the 2013 Cannes Marché du Film, 5,364 films on offer and 1,341 screenings, you must have an organized overview to plan your own strategy and to reach your goals.  The Rights Roundup gives you the clearest picture available. 


"Whether you are a filmmaker, sales agent, distributor, festival programmer or financier, knowing how to evaluate and connect with like-minded companies and producers is key to your success in the international film industry," adds partner Peter Belsito.

SydneysBuzz: Cannes Rights Roundup 2013 is the most comprehensive listing of up-to-the-minute licensing of film rights at Cannes Film Festival and Marché du Film 2013.  International sales agents and distributors link to their own company websites. Titles link to Cinando. If Cinando is not appropriate or does not have the title, then titles will link to IMDbPro in order to assist you in your professional research in the independent and international film business.  You can see a sample of a Rights Roundup Report here.

Also just published is the U.S. Distributor Report 1st Half 2012 which reports all U.S. acquisitions made by U.S. distributors in the first half of 2013 with links for further research.  A detailed Pre-Toronto Report is also in the works. As an example, see the Pre-Cannes Report here.  There will also be a Toronto By Numbers Report which is similar to this year's complete Sundance By Numbers is available here.  The Toronto By Numbers Report is already improved because its linked titles and companies come from a growing NEW database of films, figures and connected links which we are busily compiling as this article being written.

"Also please do us a favor and go to www.Indiewire.com/SydneyLevine and click on Email Updates.  And if you visit SydneysBuzz.com and subscribe to SydneysSnapshots Monthly Newsletter you will receive a free monthly report on the 5 most read blogs of the month from SydneysBuzz, OthersBuzz as well as SydneysSnapshots", coax Sydney and Peter.

And beyond the new website, reports and database, we are very pleased to announce the expansion of LatinoBuzz: The Blog which is one of SydneysBuzz's most popular feature.  It will be featured on a daily basis.  Follow SydneysBuzz: The Blog, member of the Indiewire Blog Network and News Partner with IMDbPro.
