The 22nd Shanghai International Film Festival (SIFF) Market will be held at Shanghai Exhibition Center from June 16th to 18th, 2019. Online registration will be officially open from January 1st, 2019. In 2018, the total exhibition area of SIFF Market reached 16,000 square meters, attracting 293 domestic and foreign exhibitors. Over 40% of them are foreign exhibitors, mainly from France, the Netherlands, Ukraine, Thailand, Japan, Israel, Austria and other countries and regions. The three-day Market was rich in content with up to 59 events held. A total of 19,698 people were attracted, including 5,376 professionals from 58 countries and regions around the world.
SIFF Market attracted premium domestic and foreign exhibitors along the whole industry chain, covering film and television investment and financing, production, post-production, special effects, visual effects, distribution, marketing, education, legal affairs, games, etc. Various concurrent programs and SIFF Project also contributed to the enriched and diversified experience of visitors to the Market.
As one of the carefully planned programs of SIFF Market, the “Co-Production Film Market” provides a stage for cooperation between Chinese and foreign filmmakers to further promote market transactions. The "Co-production Film Market" road show in 2018 saw the outstanding film projects on display from China, Italy, Poland, Ukraine, Israel, etc. The “Focus on Italy” event invited more than a dozen representatives of film production and distribution companies from China and Italy to gather together and share their experience and explore new ideas to strengthen cooperation between the two countries in the film industry. In 2019, the “Co-Production Film Market” will be more enriched. The main activities include: training from co-production project parties, film project road show, producer conference and the “Theme Day” event, promoting the exchange between Chinese and foreign film industries and strengthening the cooperation on international film projects.
In order to promote the exchange and cooperation of the film industries of countries along the “Belt and Road”, SIFF Market has set up the “Belt and Road” Pavilion since 2016, attracting more than 20 countries to participate in the exhibition every year, and organizing national film culture promotions to provide Chinese filmmakers with a platform to understand overseas markets.
To enrich the activities of SIFF Market, the “Shoot the Book! Shanghai” event was launched from 2017. The event is jointly held by Shanghai International Film Festival, SCELF (Société Civile des Éditeurs de Langue Française) and Institut Français to promote the cinematographic adaptation of Chinese and French literary works. Through promotions and exchanges, a bridge is built between books and movies, engaging Chinese and foreign publishers and producers.
In 2019, SIFF Market will further improve its layout and supporting facilities, making it your ideal space for exhibition and business negotiations.
