US in Progress is a joint initiative between New Horizons Association (American Film Festival), Sophie Dulac’s Champs-Elysées Film Festival and Black Rabbit Film. It presents independent US films in final production stages to European buyers, post-production houses and festivals in order to help them achieve completion and to foster the circulation and distribution of American indie films in Europe. US IN PROGRESS involves two yearly get-togethers at two different festivals (Paris in June and Wroclaw in November). The next event will take form of two days of exclusive screenings of the 6 selected films (behind closed doors, for registered guests only) and one-to-one meetings on June 13-16 2013.

As a bonus to contracts resulting from the presentations and meetings, a jury made of professionals will award one of the selected works in progress. The awarded movie will get post-production and promotion services in kind.

The last Paris and Wroclaw editions attracted more than 60 buyers and producers. Paris Alumni Hannah Fidell (A Teacher - Us in Progress Paris Award) and Wroclaw alumni Matt Porterfield (I used to be darker) and David Andalman (Milkshake) were selected in the Sundance competition (Next Section). Wroclaw alumni Matt Porterfield and Dan Carbone (Hide your Smiling Faces) will have their European premiere during the next Berlinale.

The second edition of Champs-Elysées Film Festival is to take place in Paris on June 12-18 2013.
