CineMart: about us

What is CineMart?

CineMart was the first platform of its kind to offer filmmakers the opportunity to launch their ideas to the international film industry and to find the right connections to get their projects financed. Launching about 15 new projects in need of additional financing, CineMart also heralds an important start of the 'film year'. 
Each year, CineMart invites a select number of directors/producers to present their film projects to co-producers, funds, sales agents, distributors, TV stations and other potential financiers.
