“My participation as an IFP International Fellow has been terrific. With its emphasis on international co-productions, it was an invaluable experience to get a sense of the international scene. Participation is a global agenda-setter for what you’ll soon see and what’s getting made. Producing internationally is challenging for emerging and established U.S. producers alike, because we’re not always familiar with a large swath of the treaties and initiatives in place. It was productive to learn more about resources, both soft money and location-wise, that make it worthwhile to shoot US-set features abroad.”
