One more year one of the most outstanding events on the cinematographic and audiovisual scene returns, and it does so with important novelties.
CIIF Market will bring together film producers, television channels, distributors, as well as other industry agents in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, with the aim of becoming a meeting point and business space to promote the co-production of projects for the European market and international.

The call is open to unpublished projects of fiction or documentary feature films, TV movies and television series in the development phase for the search for financing. Transmedia, crossmedia and multiplatform projects can also register.

Likewise, to boost audiovisual creation and promote synergies between the film and publishing sectors, for the first time Canarian literary works with the possibility of being adapted to different screens will be able to participate.

CIIF Market 2019 will select up to a total of 10 projects and 4 literary works, taking into account quality criteria, international projection, talent of the producers, directors and viability of the financing plan. The fact that it is the first time the project is presented in a forum, that the production company has made at least one international co-production, the innovation in formats and the approach of new distribution and financing formulas, as well as previous works completed by the director and/or producer will be valued.
In the case of Canarian literary compositions, the quality of the works, the talent of the authors and the feasibility of being adapted to film, television or digital platforms will also be taken into account.
Participants will have the opportunity to have a personalized schedule of meetings with invited professionals and potential investors to co-produce their projects or adapt their literary works, as well as attend different presentations, workshops and colloquiums. Likewise, they will be able to opt for various prizes for their promotion abroad.

In its latest editions, more than 170 professionals, 110 companies and 70 projects from 12 countries have participated in the market. Some thirty feature films produced, with global investment figures that exceed 65 million euros and which began their journey at the CIIF Market, guarantee its success.

The XVI edition of the Canary Islands International Film Market will continue its trajectory as an important network of contacts and a useful tool for the participating projects, facilitating their access and knowledge about the different financing channels and the search for international co-producers for their film and audiovisual projects, reinforcing networking between companies in the audiovisual sector.
