CineMart is IFFR Pro's co-production market, where a carefully curated lineup of projects in development are presented to international industry representatives. Bold independent feature film projects are launched onto the market, along with select immersive media (XR) projects. Together they receive vital mentorship and networking opportunities.
CineMart is known for its highly curated editorial line of distinct projects in story and form. We present projects by independent directors and producers and mostly arthouse work, ensuring there is a wide variety by presenting smaller, more vulnerable work alongside films by established teams with higher budgets. The CineMart selection reflects the overall editorial line of the programme of International Film Festival Rotterdam.

Selected projects work together with experienced experts – who have the role as mentors throughout – to assess what the project precisely needs, so we can provide tailored support to get the most out of the market experience. Guests and projects alike can indicate with who they want to meet, and whether you join us as a project team or guest, you will be provided with a tailored schedule. Our aim is to have a strong focus on finding the right creative and financial partners and fostering lasting connections.

CineMart is a by-invitation-only market. We carefully review the guestlist each year in order to ensure that the attending industry representatives can contribute and possibly commit to the projects in the CineMart selection. CineMart delegates are co-producers, sales agents, distributors, broadcasters and potential financiers. CineMart badge holders can request meetings with all presented projects.
