MIA, since 2015, has inherited and included the best and successful practices and the 11-year experience of New Cinema Network (NCN), the Rome’s market programme designed to support new independent filmmaking: an International Project Market, where filmmakers – selected among the world’s most interesting talents on the independent film scene – find an ideal and efficient hub for presenting their new feature film projects and connect with the key players in the international film industry, explore the strategies and possibilities of international financing and co-production and where open to the various bordering arts and markets.
The Rome’s market has become a reference point where filmmakers and producers – selected from among the world’s most interesting talents on the independent film scene – find an ideal platform for presenting their new feature film projects and connect with key players in the international film industry.
More than 50% of the projects selected by NCN over the past editions have completed funding and have become award-winning, internationally recognized films: among them, PEACE TO US IN OUR DREAMS by Sharunas Bartas (Cannes, Stockholm, Haifa); SWORN VIRGIN by Laura Bispuri (Berlin, Tribeca, BFI Flare); JAUJA by Lisandro Alonso (Cannes, San Sebastian, London, Karlovy Vary, Toronto, Busan); THE SELFISH GIANT by Clio Barnard (Cannes, Sarajevo, Karlovy Vary, Rio de janeiro, BFI London); SOUTH IS NOTHING by Fabio Mollo (Toronto, Berlin, Raindance, San Francisco); ZERO MOTIVATION by Talya Lavie (Tribeca, Vancouver, London, Hong Kong).
The MIA|Cinema Coproduction Market is honored to present once again in 2016 the Eurimages Co-Production Development Award: during the event, an International Jury will assign the Award, a cash prize of 20.000 Euros for the development of the best feature film project showcased that fulfills the criteria for collaboration and co-production that inspire Eurimages.
