takes you to a Flashback to the

American Film

 Market 2001

AFMA, formerly known as the American Film Marketing Association, was established in 1980 by a group of distributors whose main goal was to expand the independent film business by creating a world-class trade show, the American Film Market (AFM). Today, AFMA has evolved into the trade association for the independent film and television industry worldwide, while the AFM concurrently has become the largest international film market in the world.

Los Angeles, CA (February 5, 2001) – Jonathan Wolf, managing director of the American Film Market announced today the complete list of AFM
screenings. This year, over 385 titles from around the globe will screen at the AFM, including 238 that have never before screened at a major film market.  In addition, there will be 21 films screened from this year’s Sundance Film Festival including double award-winner Hedwig and the Angry

Inch (Audience Award-Dramatic and Directing Award) and In the Bedroom (Special Jury Prize-Dramatic).  "For the second year in a row, a vibrant

and healthy independent film industry will bring nearly 400 films to the AFM," stated Wolf. "We are thrilled that our industry remains so
robust. It does create a challenge for the AFM, however. With only 640 screening times, almost half of the 400 films will only screen once."
