Independent Film Week Returns September 18 with Project Forum

September 1, 2011 - Independent Film Week, running from September 18-22, finds a new home this year at the Film Society of Lincoln Center's Elinor Bunin Monroe Film Center. The week is hosted by IFP - the nation's oldest and largest non-profit for independent film. The Project Forum, the centerpiece of Independent Film Week, consists of a number of initiatives aimed at building industry interest for new work, as well as general audience support for independent film projects.

Project Forum is designed specifically as a place for industry to meet with new talent, as well as discover fresh projects from emerging and veteran filmmakers.

"We are thrilled to be moving Independent Film Week to Lincoln Center and to bring together so many diverse filmmakers with unique and original voices from across the U.S. and around the globe," said Joana Vicente, Executive Director, IFP.

Since its start IFP has supported the production of 7,000 films and provided resources to more than 20,000 filmmakers. IFP fosters the development of 350 new feature and documentary films each year through its Project Forum of Independent Film Week, Independent Filmmaker Labs and projects in its fiscal sponsorship program.
