COLOGNE, Germany - Belgium will launch the first ever film market exclusively devoted to 3D films. The 3D Film Mart, or 3DFM will bow for the first time Dec. 7-8 in Liege, Belgium and will offer a platform for producers of 3D features, animation, documentaries and TV fare to hook up with co-producers, financiers, sales agents and distributors from around the world. The inaugural 3DFM will feature some 20 projects in development and about ten equity investors will be invited.
Organizers, which include TWIST, organizers of Belgium's 3D Stereo MEDIA conference, and German consultancy group peacefulfish, hope the market will spur the production of 3D features in Europe.
