International Film Festivals
American Film Festival
Wrocław, Poland / November 5-11, 2019 / americanfilmfestival.pl
With no entry fee, provided lodging, and lively nightlife, the festival, devoted to U.S. films, offers a chance to connect with distributors such as Canal+, Gutek Film, and United International Pictures. A prize of $10,000 for top feature is the icing on the cake. Master classes, panel discussions, Q&As and industry meal gatherings offer the opportunity for making connections. Recent films that achieved distribution deals include Bart Layton’s American Animals and Ethan Hawke’s Blaze. The festival’s U.S. in Progress is the first European event devoted to U.S. indies and their completion and European distribution at the post-production stage.
