A formidable list of delegates and producers has been announced for the inaugural Production Finance Market (PFM) being held in London later this month (Oct 22-23).

An estimated $500 million worth of projects are being presented, both individually and as part of slates.

Confirmed attendees include many major distributors and vertically integrated players, among them Miramax, The Weinstein Company, Summit, Focus, Pathe, Studio Canal, Paramount, Sony Pictures Classics and Warner Bros.

Also coming to the PFM are various private equity and hedge fund players, among them Limelight, Aramid, Newbridge Film Capital, Rubicon International End Game, Liberty Global and Cedar Lane Asset Managers.

Banks will be there in big numbers too, as will UK and European financiers like Future Films, Scope Invest and Motion Investment Group.

'It is absolutely not a market focused on state or regional funds talking to each other about a regional co-production. It's people coming with individual projects and slates and staring into the eyes of some serious financiers,' said Adrian Wootton, chief executive of Film London (which has organised the $400,000 event with the London Film Festival.)

Among the many projects being presented are Priority Pictures' The Club, Endboard Films' The Bounty Hunter, First Foot Films' Quiver, Tiger Lily Films' La Chinoise, and slates from such companies as Dan Films, Kudos, Recorded Picture Company, Free Range, Ealing Studios, Warp, Ruby Films, Slingshot and DNA.
