THE BUSINESS STREET

NEW CINEMA NETWORK

 

November 14th –18th, 2012

 

The Business Street (TBS) is the first attempt to bring a Market event back toItaly that could attract international operators and become part of the virtuous circuit of events that from Berlin to Cannes punctuate the rhythm of film production and distribution. With its supple structure and informal atmosphere, TBS offers a valid alternative to traditional trade shows. It is no coincidence that TBS and New Cinema Network (NCN) are among the few Italian initiatives that are recognized by the Media Programme since 2008.

This year, the Market will take place during the second part of the Festival, from the 14th to the 18th of November 2012, staking out a strategic position in the Italian and international calendar of industry events. Far from the crowded end-of-summer conjuncture, the new scheduling makes this market an ideal commercial launching pad for new films, both in Italy and abroad.

NCN is proud to host, for the third year in a row, the Eurimages Co-production Development Award: a 30,000 Euro award for the development of the best project presented at NCN 2012. This is an important acknowledgment by the European Council, which has recognized NCN as one of the three most important and effective co-production markets.
