MAFF Market Forum 2018 takes place 6-8 October.
MAFF Market Forum (MMF) is a unique platform for the Nordic and Arab film industries designed to stimulate collaboration, co-production and distribution opportunities. MMF brings together producers, funds, distributors and film professionals in seminars, lectures, workshops, pitching venues, networking sessions. MMF includes market screenings, and offers several funding initiatives for Nordic-Arab co-productions. Since its inception, the MMF has contributed to encouraging co-production between the Nordic countries and the Arab world and supported a wide range of film projects.
MAFF Market Forum presents an excellent opportunity for film professionals to exhibit and present their work, extend their networks and initiate new international collaborations and co-productions.
For the 4th edition of MAFF Market Forum for Co-production of feature, short and documentary films in development we have received no less than 37 eligible projects from the Arabic countries and Sweden, and 28 eligible projects in post-production.
The selection process was tough, as we have received many interesting projects. However, in the final stages, the true standout films and projects were discussed and considered at length by the entire selection committee and festival director. And now MAFF is proud to announce the projects and films in competition for MAFF Development and Post-Production Fund.
