IFP Film Week Includes Digital, Web, VR and App-Based Content

IFP announced this week that they are expanding IFP Film Week outside of film to include TV, web, digital, VR and app-based series content.

IFP has been around for 37 years and to see the company evolve its content in support of new mediums is a testament to the ongoing legacy IFP represents for content creators.

“In this changing technological landscape, it’s imperative to give voices to those who think outside the box and look to not only film and television, but also web, digital, and VR platforms to get their stories out there,” says IFP Executive Director Joana Vicente.

Due to the growing demand of storytellers experimenting with projects through a multitude of platforms, it makes sense for established film communities like IFP to expand their own platform outside of film.

It’s impressive to see IFP also include VR as developments in this new field are only just beginning.  The potential to have stories made by creators using 360 VR technology is sure to impact the way we make stories and experience them.

Series creators will take part in the IFP Project Forum, the only International Co-Production Market in the U.S. featuring stories for all platforms.

The event will take place in DUMBO September 17-22, 2016.
