From November 4 to 11, the event of the American Film Market (AFM) will be taking place in Santa Monica, California, at the Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel and Le Merigot Beach Hotel. While the AFM is not a film festival (despite having screenings), it's rather a place where distribution deals are closed on films of many nationalities.
So far, it seems that E1 Entertainment is the only Canadian distributor that will be at Santa Monica to present its portfolio of Canadian-made films. By the way, if you happen to work in the distribution industry, you will find E1 Entertainment at the office (or booth or whatever you call it) number 504 at the Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel during the AFM. By the way, the following links will lead you to each film's trailer. In the case of Year of the Carnivore, you will be led to the film's official web site, because the trailer is not online yet (as I was posting this). So, here comes the list of films:
|5150 rue des Ormes (5150 Elm's Way)|
|Les 7 jours du talion (7 Days)|
|Leslie, My Name Is Evil|
|Year of the Carnivore|
Good luck to these Canadian films and may they find a distribution deal in the USA and other countries!
