Independent Film Week takes place September 16-20, 2012 at various locations throughout Lincoln Center and is a one-of-a-kind event that brings the international film and media community to New York City to advance new voices and projects on the independent scene. The event is purely focused on supporting the future of storytelling by nurturing and providing opportunities for both emerging and established artists to connect with the financiers, executives, influencers and decision-makers in film, television, new media and cross-platform storytelling that can help them complete their latest works and connect with audiences.
IFP's Project Forum has had a prolific history in the independent community supporting independent filmmakers at critical stages in their development processes. 165 U.S. and International projects have been selected for the 2012 Project Forum, evenly split between documentary and narrative features.
