WHY YOU SHOULD EXHIBIT!

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