The International Film Festival Rotterdam’s co-production market CineMart (26 – 29 January) has completed its selection for the 2014 edition.
The selection includes new projects from directors including Peter Webber, Naomi Kawase, Alessandro Comodin, Eran Kolirin, Alexis dos Santos and Alejandro Landes, Shereen Seno and Igor Drljaca.
Returning producers include Cedomir Kolar (ASAP Films), Helena Danielsson (Hepp Films), and Piotr Kobus (Mañana).
IFFR and CPH:DOX, the Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival, combine forces at IFFR on the Art:Film initiative, which connects visual art to cinema. The three Art:Film projects presented at CineMart 2014 are Fierté nationale by Sven Augustijnen, Tarda Primavera by Michael Frammartino, and Invention by Mark Lewis.
The CineMart projects are eligible for two prizes: the Eurimages Co-Production Development Award (€30,000 for a European co-production) and the the ARTE France Cinéma Award (€5,000).
CineMart’s Bianca Taal and Nienke Poelsma said about the selection: “We are very proud to present a lean and sharp selection of twenty-five projects all ready to be launched internationally. The projects we chose all amazed, surprised and moved us, and we feel we succeeded in including a wide array of tones, styles and stories into the selection.”
