The International Partnership Market (IPM) is a selective market that provides the opportunity for Australian feature film and television producers to create, build upon and develop relationships with international film and television producers who are looking for co-venture or co-production opportunities.

The IPM is held at the annual SCREEN FOREVER conference, one of the largest congregations of screen practitioners in the Southern Hemisphere. For more information, contact Simonne Overend (International Consultant, Screen Producers Australia). Australian producers can also connect with other key partners such as local and foreign sales agents, financiers and distributors.

Participation is by application only and selected Australian producers will be matched with potential international partners appropriate to their needs, in prearranged 25 minute, one-on-one meetings. There are limited spaces available to participate in the market and the number of meetings cannot be guaranteed.

Applications to take part in the 2015 IPM have now closed. Applicants will be informed of the status of their participation in the third week of October 2015.
