1,600 Buyers. 80 Countries. One Location.

Why You Should Exhibit

Reach more than 1,600 Buyers from 80+ countries with billions of dollars in buyer power.
Connect with Buyers you won't see at other markets. More than 20% of buying companies at the AFM don’t go to Cannes!
AFM Buyers are motivated and serious about buying film. They’ve invested time and money to travel to Santa Monica.
Markets deliver the best return on your marketing investment. Where else can you meet all the Buyers under one roof?
Build your sales pipeline and cultivate new relationships. Do you really know EVERY Buyer?
Films don't sell themselves. The best deals are done face-to-face.
Unlike a festival, you have the opportunity for multiple offers because every Buyer will be there.
The AFM is six months after Cannes, the longest gap between film markets. Buyers will be ready to buy.
Build your company's profile and relationships. Your absence would be noticed by Buyers and the trade press.
More centralized than Cannes, better weather than Berlin, the easiest market for Buyers and Sellers to do business.
