Access to the Global Film Industry
The filmmaking world is about what you know AND who you know — and AFM delivers both, giving you incomparable access to thousands of decision makers and experts from around the globe.
Networking on a Beachfront Campus
AFM’s Santa Monica campus provides unparalleled opportunities for sharing ideas, discovering partners, cultivating new connections and establishing the foundation for future projects.
WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND
The American Film Market is where the business of film will come to life this November in the world’s filmmaking capital. We are excited to once again welcome the global industry back to Santa Monica in-person.
In our business, so much depends on your creativity as well as your knowledge and understanding of the current landscape of our industry. Over five days, AFM immerses you in the world’s film community. Take full advantage of pivotal opportunities to network, gain visibility for yourself and your films, discover new production options, develop future projects, and access industry professionals who finance, produce and distribute 90% of films globally.
Our industry is constantly changing, especially in the last two years. The AFM Sessions will bring more than 100 prominent speakers live to our two stages to share their insights on the state of independent film and every aspect of filmmaking, including financing, production, distribution and perfecting your pitch.
Each year there are hundreds of AFM success stories. Whether you are seeking financing, representation, creative or business partners, production locations and incentives, or are ready to pitch your next film, our beachfront campus provides the perfect backdrop. The in-person meetings and connections that happen organically each year at AFM have been career-changing!
