Promoting business: IMZ activities and services
As the lobbying group we aim to make a major contribution to our member’s business. Our diverse activities help to save time and costs on acquisition, pitching and networking: connecting producers with buyers and distributors, providing a synopsis of the latest cultural films available for international programme editors and broadcasters or bringing together producers with co-producers or funding institutions.
As the largest network of the music, dance and cultural film industry we provide customised services for members and non-members: curating film programmes for international music film festivals and events, services for individuals and companies looking for co-production partners, consulting for or clearance of film rights among others.
