New: calling for projects for S-3D movies, AR/VR contents and videogames!
The 3D Content Financing Market (3DFM) is an international co-production and financing market fully dedicated to projects for stereoscopic-3D (S-3D) contents. It brings together (1) producers with new projects for S-3D contents and looking for financing, and (2) financiers and co-producers looking for investment opportunities. Initiated in 2011, 3DFM is the only such market in the world. It is now in its 5th edition.
3DFM will take place on 14-15 Dec 2015 at the Théâtre de Liège, Belgium, as part of 3D Stereo MEDIA, the International 3D Summit for Science, Technology, Art and Business (www.3dstereomedia.eu). As in previous years, 3DFM is organized in collaboration with peacefulfish.
We are looking for projects for S-3D contents (movies/films, virtual/augmented reality and videogames) that have, at a minimum, a first-cut preliminary script, a significant international sales potential, and - for movies only - a budget of at least 500,000€. These projects are eligible for at least a poster presentation/pitch. Projects that additionally have a complete preliminary script and at least 50% percent of the financing secured are eligible for an oral presentation/pitch. The projects can be submitted by experienced S-3D producers, experienced 2D producers who would like to make the transition to S-3D, or persons with a demonstrated artistic ability.
3DFM also features other activities, such as a workshop on the financing and marketing of S-3D contents/movies, case studies in S-3D content making, the coaching of the oral pitchers, a networking reception, and visits of local (co-)production houses.
All information about 3DFM can be found at www.3dstereomedia.eu/market including this Call for projects, the Regulations, and the Submission form. Although the Regulations provide answers to most of the questions you may have, do not hesitate to contact us if you have additional questions.
The Submission form and all required elements must be sent per email no later than 15 September 2015.

Cannes: SR Socially Relevant Film Festival New York launches 3rd edition and opens Early Bird submissions during the Cannes Film Festival 2015!
SR Socially Relevant (TM) Film Festival New York wrapped its 2nd annual edition after week-long screenings of 53 films from 33 countries and four industry panels in March. SR Film Festival honored Albert Maysles posthumously with the Lifetime of Inspiration Award while the festival’s special Justice and Peace Award went to Israeli Filmmaker Guy Davidi (Five Broken Cameras) for his film High Hopes featuring a soundtrack by Pink Floyd.
SR Socially Relevant (TM) Film Festival NY, now in its 3rd year, is a film festival that focuses on socially relevant human interest stories and raises awareness to social problems by offering positive solutions through the powerful medium of cinema. SR Socially Relevant (TM) Film Fest NY shines the spotlight on filmmakers who tell compelling, socially relevant narratives across a broad range of social issues without resorting to gratuitous violence and violent forms of movie making. The film categories include shorts, documentaries, narrative features as well as scripts in competition.
According to Festival Founding Artistic Director Nora Armani, “The festival is a movement for the promotion of socially relevant film content not just a week-long series of screenings. We strongly believe in the power of cinema for positive social change, and we work hard in rewarding filmmakers who chose to tell socially relevant stories.” In view of this the festival curates screenings throughout the year and secures an annual presence at the Cannes Marché Doc Corner with a selection of Docs from its slate.
After a successful and expanded 2nd edition in 2015 the SR team is now looking forward to organizing the 3rd edition that will take place in March 2016. In Cannes, the team is busy with meetings with potential sponsors, new partners, and is keen on inviting film offices of countries rich with Socially Relevant (TM) film content to become the focus of its 3rd edition. New submissions open Monday May 18. The discount code: CAN15 offers Early Bird entries a further discount.
For more information on the festival, the industry panels, how to be involved as a partner, sponsor, panelist, jury, and filmmaker, visit the festival’s website: www.ratedsrfilms.org or contact the festival team at: firstname.lastname@example.org
