The 2014 American Film Mart was a very interesting and eye-opening education on some of the inner-workings of Hollywood. Gambit Films’ Bradley Joshua attended the market, representing Gambit Films in fascinating conference sessions on Financing, Production and Distribution, with Industry professionals like Brett Ratner (Director of Hercules, The Rush Hour trilogy and many others) and Mark Gill (President of Millennium Films). Attending AFM has helped Bradley forge valuable new relationships which has expanded Gambit’s global network of Industry Partners.

Facilitated through the Cape Film Commission, the trip will see Nosipho networking and pitching with some of the most influential filmmakers, financiers and distributors from around the globe in order to gain investment opportunities for Feature Film, Television and Documentary projects currently in development at Gambit Films.

IFFR: A FESTIVAL FOR THE ART OF FILM & FILMMAKING

In January 2013, Travis Taute and Daryne Joshua attended the International Film Festival Rotterdam. The festival, which at the core focuses on Arthouse Film & Development was a learning of curve of note for both directors. Mixing with some of the most elite filmmakers from around the globe, the complexity of international financing, co-production and distribution were made accessible through world-class seminars hosted by European and American industry veterans. Through opportunities to pitch to various German, French and Dutch Producers, Gambit Films took a significant step forward in establishing an international client base for commercials, along with building budding relationships that will continuously be developed in the world of cinema. An inspiration for documentary filmmakers too, the festival enhanced Gambit’s 2013 project slate, allowing market research and audience appeal to fine-tune our projects based on commercial viability. Through a collaborative effort, 2013 will hopefully bring one or more of Gambit’s projects currently in development, into production with international partners. Despite the average -7C temperatures, the trip, which was facilitated through PUM EXPERTS was nothing but a success! Stay tuned for more updates as these projects head closer to a screen near you…

Gambit Films will be the first to produce VANISHED in English for both local and International audiences. Stay tuned as this project heads into development…
