To enhance the financing, production, distribution and marketing of independent films and television programming around the world, IFTA offers tools and services that address practical requirements in an increasingly complex marketplace.

First and most visibly, IFTA produces the annual American Film Market (AFM) each November in Santa Monica. The AFM, along with similar events held each year in Cannes, France and elsewhere, is a key venue at which the world’s Independents negotiate the deals under which films are made, financed and distributed globally.

Other Services Offered to IFTA Members Include: 

 - IFTA Arbitration
