It has been twenty-six years since the Film Market was first set up as a section of the Short Film Festival in Drama. The Film Market is an institution that forms an integral part of all major international film festivals. The purpose of the Film Market is to bring into contact film directors and producers with distribution companies and television channels, with a view to the purchase and distribution of films, as well as their screening in other international festivals. Moreover, there are films in the Film Market which bear a code number and refer to past catalogues. Past catalogues are available upon request. The Film Market staff sees to the best possible promotion and screening of the films that are available.
