Who is attending WFF?
The WFF is unique amongst Film Fairs for several reasons. There are no less than 400 festivals involved at the fair. The venue, in New York City, is highly appropriate as ninety percent of the head offices of the world film industry companies are located there.
To ensure that filmmakers get optimum screen exposure, twenty-five of the most prestigious University Film Departments and Film Production schools have confirmed their participation at the fair, as have ten of the top USA theater networks and twenty leading USA TV Channels. At this stage it is inappropriate to reveal the companies who have already signed up, but the full list of participants will be available from June 15th 2018.
The most well-known companies who attended AFM, Cannes, Berlinale and Filmart have all been invited and approximately 10,000 films and projects will be showcased from independent filmmakers.
Apart from Intellect Pictures, contributions to the Fair organization have been made by representatives of nine of the world’s largest film festivals. These are New York State Film Festival, Cinema Los Angeles, Washington Film Festival, Euro Cinema Film Festival, German United Film Festival, Austria International Film Festival, Festival International du Film de Cannes, London Classic Film Festival and Hong Kong National Film Festival. At the time of writing, five highly regarded New York hotels have agreed to be partners of the WFF, and organizers are in the process of negotiating with more. It is anticipated that online screening will be arranged with Cinando. Further details, about costs and the procedure to become an exhibitor can be found at: https://worldfilmfair.com/Exhibit
The WFF has in the region of 50 partners and 450 participants and when the website is updated in June, it will list them all. In addition to Davi Fisher there will be about 100 other team members involved. Opportunities will be available for attendees to contact various sectors and ask specific questions of the attending experts.
The World Film Fair will be the first of its kind in that not only will the Fair be held in New York but there will also be World Film Fair screenings held in multiple locations and venues around the world during the week of the Fair (26th-31st of October, 2018)! So the films selected to be screened at the World Film Fair will be shown to a global audience of both film goers and film industry companies such as distributors, production companies, film buyers and investors!
We will be combining different sources and companies and joining them together into one big global project, where our main goal is to giving a platform to the films of students and children so they can be seen around the world. It is time for the focus to shift from the small number of Hollywood blockbuster films, which are oftentimes similar and repetitive, on to the independent films and projects from the world's youth, whose new and revolutionary ideas and stories will change the face of Hollywood film in the very near future!
If you are involved in the film sector ( as a filmmaker, distributor, production company, film buyer, investor, workshop, film school, university, theatre, film cafe, film studio, etc.), you can join our project at any time.
Who is financing WFF?
The WFF is financed by various bodies including Intellect Pictures and numerous private investors.
Gala dinner attended by Hollywood Stars.
Several celebrity actors have confirmed their attendance both at the events and a special Gala dinner which will be held at the conclusion of the Fair. The World Film Fair is proud of its significant and long-term experience of organizing film festivals around the world.
What's the awards budget of the WFF?
Its creators and organizers are extremely knowledgeable about both film production and distribution. No limits have been set as to the age of movies submitted and a total budget of $25,000 has been set aside for cash awards for winners in different competition categories. Opportunities have been created for mutual exchange (e.g. free screening of work in exchange for promotion) and the WFF is open to suggestions along similar lines.
Any genre of film can be submitted, whether short or long. In some instances the WFF will be able to meet travel expenses - this will be assessed on an individual basis. The sales potential of the WFF is immense and the inclusion of the top film universities ensures that new talent will be discovered - the fund for grants for student projects being substantial.
