3D Film Mart Deadline Extended to September 14
The 3D Film Mart (3DFM), now in its 2nd edition, is the first European co-production market for stereoscopic-3D (S-3D) movies. The 3D Film Mart was developed by 3D Stereo MEDIA in association with TWIST and Peacefulfish.
The event will take place on December 4-5, 2012 in Liège, Belgium during the 3DStereoMedia conference.
The deadline for projects submission, originally scheduled at August 31, 2012, has been extended to September 14, 2012.
What is 3D Film Mart?
The co-production market works as follows: Producers of 3D contents (for cinema, TV, ...) who have projects for S-3D contents (feature, documentary, animation, alternative content, ...) at an early stage of development, and are looking for financing, are invited to submit their projects to the market.
Since the primary goal of the market is to boost the production of quality 3D content and to be educational, 3DFM strongly encourages producers that lack experience in S-3D but are successful in 2D movie making - or in some other form of art - to submit their first S-3D project, thereby using the market as a way to get up to speed in the demanding world of 3D!
