The IFFAM Project Market (IPM) will return digitally this December for a fifth edition during the International Film Festival & Awards Macao (December 3-8) with projects produced by Cate Blanchett, Eric Khoo and Camille Gatin. Scroll down for lineup.
According to organizers, a total of 14 projects will comprise the “intensive program of presentations and meetings conducted digitally with members of the global industry from December 3rd – 5th”. The projects will be eligible for four cash awards (listed below).
Projects include acclaimed cinematographer Christopher Doyle’s collaboration with director Jenny Suen on Cate Blanchett-produced comedy Peaches; Eric Khoo-produced Singaporean creature feature Prisoners Of The Pacific; sci-fi Fellow Travellers from The Girl With All The Gifts producer Camille Gatin; and The Dragon Returns, in which Bruce Lee is brought back from his staged death and retirement to save his old friend Chuck Norris from imprisonment.
There has been no recent word from Macao as to whether the festival will be able to go ahead physically this year but given the worldwide travel restrictions and local bans on public gathering it’s likely the event will have to move online too.
