Every November, the entire global film industry converges in Santa Monica for the American Film Market.  Whether you are an exhibitor, buyer, attendee or sponsor, AFM is the ultimate Film Market to check out at Le Meridien Delfina in Santa Monica, Ca.

AFM is the premier film acquisition, development and networking event where more than $1 Billion in distribution and film financing deals are closed each year on completed films and those in every stage of development. More business-oriented than any other motion picture event, thousands of professionals from all corners of our industry come together at AFM to develop, showcase, discover, finance and license 1000s of independent films and projects destined for the world’s audiences.

At AFM, participants can also attend The AFM Sessions – 30+ world class conferences and panels, and connect with the independent film community’s decision makers, all in one convenient location.

AFM is the only sales market produced by the Independents for our industry.

Once again, The AFM Sessions will present four full days of programming exploring today’s global industry and where we are headed.  Forecasts for the future, marketplace intelligence, advice on how to best navigate our industry, and conversations on the most current topics and technologies across Financing, Production, Distribution, Streaming, FAST, AI, Sustainability, Diversity, and more will be shared through the lens of 100+ Speakers from all facets of the business.
