American Film Market concludes with influx of new buying companies – movieScope

Over the whole of the market, which came to its conclusion last Wednesday, 442 films were screened, with 82 world premieres and 327 market premieres from over 30 countries.

A total of 753 buying companies from more than 60 countries were present this year. The AFM Conferences, which launched in 2011, spoke to large audiences of more than 700 in attendance each day.  Overall, 7,749 people attended the market to date.

“The healthy growth in new buying companies is the most important metric for us,” said AFM Managing Director Jonathan Wolf. “It shows that the global marketplace for independent film is continuing to expand.”

Regions with more buyers at the market included Asia up 14 per cent and Latin America up 17 per cent. Among individual countries, Japan and Korea had the largest increase for buying companies, with Korea providing 26 per cent more companies than in previous years, and Japan up 23 per cent.
