Match Me! 2019
Match Me! is a program that provides an informal networking platform for new and upcoming production companies with distinct focus and strong visions.
Apart from the event, professionals such as producers, distributors, festival curators, sales agents and channel programmers meet up looking for new business opportunities during the Industry Days activities.
Thanks to Cinema do Brasil’s partnership with the Festival, the associated producers have the great opportunity to present their projects to the main players in the market.
“During the Industry Days in Locarno, the film The Second Mother, directed by Anna Muylaerte, a work in progress at that time, was acquired by the The Match Factory followed by an official selection in the Sundance Film Festival. It is therefore an amazing opportunity for Brazilian films and producers to find international partners”, says André Sturm, founder and consultant for Cinema do Brasil.
This year the three Cinema do Brasil’s associated producers attending the Match Me! meetings are: Aline Mazzarella, from Estúdio Giz; André Mielnik, from If You Hold a Stone; and Daniel Pech, from Multiverso Produções.
