Founded in 1979, IFP Week, organized by the Independent Filmmaker Project, will run from September 15-19, 2019. IFP also curates the annual program U.S. & French Connection in partnership with French in Motion to gather talent from the U.S. and France. French in Motion and Series Mania have organized the “Looking Abroad” panel, as well as a cocktail party for attending professionals.
