To Exhibit

10 Reasons to Exhibit at AFM

  • Reach more than 1,500 Buyers from 70+ countries with billions of dollars in buyer power.
  • See Buyers you won't see at other markets. More than 20% of buying companies at the AFM don’t go to Cannes!
  • AFM Buyers are motivated and serious about buying film. They’ve invested time and money to travel to Santa Monica.
  • Markets deliver the best return on your marketing investment. Where else can you meet all the Buyers under one roof?
  • Build your sales pipeline and cultivate new relationships. Do you really know EVERY Buyer?
  • Films don't sell themselves. The best deals result from face-to-face contact.
  • Unlike a festival, you have the opportunity for multiple offers because every Buyer will be there.
  • The AFM is six months after Cannes, the longest gap between film markets. Buyers will be ready to buy.
  • Maintain and build your company's profile. Your absence would be noticed by Buyers and the trade press.
  • More centralized than Cannes, better weather than Berlin, the easiest market for Buyers and Sellers to do business.


*How much is it to exhibit?

Each company pays a $3,500 exhibition fee in addition to the office rental cost.  The least expensive office is $5,825. Companies may also register as an “Exhibitor without office”.  The $3,500 exhibition fee includes up to four (4) photo badges.  However, only companies with offices may screen films at the AFM.
