NATPE & LA Screenings Independents Pact


NATPE has entered into a partnership with LA Screenings Independents 2018 aimed at growing the presence of global buyers and distributors.

At LA Screenings Independents 2018, NATPE will provide attendees a range of new services at a minimal administration fee to gain access to the entire event database, exclusive business-driven sessions and NATPE Connect, an interactive platform with concierge services to facilitate meetings on site. The partnership helps NATPE deliver on the promise of a “year-round Association,” providing its constituents with opportunities to generate new deals, business intelligence and networking.

The marketplace will occur May 15 to 18 at the Intercontinental Hotel Los Angeles in Century City in advance of the long-running screenings held annually by the major Hollywood studios for international broadcasters.

Isabella Marquez, president of the LA Screenings Independents, said, “We couldn’t be happier to have NATPE as our partner to take our event to the next level. This year’s LA Screenings Independents will no doubt become a premier event for the global independent production community.”

NATPE’s president and CEO, JP Bommel, said, “This partnership exemplifies our mission to provide buyers from around the world a first look at new programming opportunities from all over the world including Canada, Latin American and Asia. We are thrilled to join forces with Isabella Marquez who has spearheaded this must-attend marketplace.”
