About

1st annual MIBFF BLACK MARKET:

Our commitment to the future of filmmaking

September 2014, Montreal

To celebrate the 10 years of the Montreal International Black Film Festival,
we’re expanding our program by presenting:

WHAT

A conference that features internationally renowned industry professionals, experts, thought leaders, visionaries and like-minded people, who will share an exciting blend of cutting edge thinking and real world experience on today’s most critical filmmaking issues. Get closer to your dream or broaden your knowledge & network by learning & sharing with the experts. Don’t miss out on your chance to gain a competitive advantage and network with attendees from the world’s most up and coming filmmaking and show business professionals.

WHY?

There isn’t an independent filmmaker or film professional that doesn’t want to be more innovative in their thinking, films and processes or more successful in putting their films out in the market. In today’s day and age, producing a film independently and as a single party is quite a challenge. In these times of accelerating change, The MIBFF Black Market responds to what is happening in the world now in the areas that are critical to the success of any organization or individual dealing with Filmmaking. Whether it’s funding, creativity, marketing, sales, distribution, technology or leadership, The MIBFF Black Market delivers unrivaled access to the very latest thinking directly from those who are setting the agenda.

WHO?

From practical tips, to innovative strategies, The MIBFF Black Market is designed to teach and provide filmmakers, producers, directors, managers, agents & artists, aspiring and established film industry professionals - from around the world, with industry insights & talk about trends in the filmmaking business as well as directly related, easily applied tools and techniques that can be implemented within all levels of their business. Current & future Filmmakers will have the opportunity to learn, meet, discuss and debate with experts, renowned industry professionals and like-minded people.
