71st Mifed: a compact European presence

71st Mifed: a compact European presence

Program of Mifed 2004 Conferences

Parallel events

The 71st edition of Mifed (International cinema and Multimedia Market) will take place from the 12th through the 16th of October 2004 at Milan Fairgrounds.
There is a compact and solid registration on the part of European companies in this historical movie market, with particular emphasis on a strong presence of the leading French and German companies, such as Pathé, Celluloid Dreams and Bavaria.
High quality market premières are guaranteed, with “hot titles” such as Venice prize-winner Vera Drake directed by Mike Leigh, The Bridesmaid by Claude Chabrol, Dogora by Patrice Le conte, Mar adentro by the spanish director Alejandro Amenábar, and The ninth day by Germany’s Volker Schlöndorff.
The Asian presence, numerous notwithstanding the recent Pusan Film Festival, is a clear signal of continuity with the past edition of Mifed, which had already registered a very strong increase of companies from this area, with particular emphasis on China’s first entry as a seller in the history of Mifed, as well as being present with a large delegation of buyers.
A new initiative, Location & Connection, has brought about the return to Mifed of Film Commissions, an ever-increasing reality in the panorama of international film production.
