The Entire Global Catalogue
Most of the word’s films are financed, produced and/or distributed by AFM participants. Films and projects in all stages of development and production – from around the world – are presented every year at AFM.
A Centralized Marketplace
AFM is more business-oriented than any other film market. The entire independent film community of decision makers is in one location, allowing you to focus entirely on the business of film, without the distraction of a festival.
A Beachfront Campus
AFM’s Santa Monica locale allows you to foster relationships within the Hollywood community, home to more film industry companies and professionals than anywhere else in the world.

Location is key — the market’s beachfront Santa Monica locale allows you to build relationships within the Hollywood community, home to more film industry companies and professionals than anywhere else in the world.
