NEW DELHI: Ten projects were selected today for participation in the 13th annual Fast Track film financing market organized by Film Independent.

Held during the Los Angeles Film Festival, Fast Track is designed to help producer-director teams “fast track” their projects forward through sixty meetings with top industry executives--financiers, agents, managers, distributors, granting organizations, and production companies. During three days of intensive meetings, participants gain valuable exposure and build vital relationships as they propel their films towards completion.

Fast Track is supported by Film Independent Artist Development lead funder Time Warner Foundation, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, NEA Art Works, EFILM, Loyola Marymount University School of Film and Television, and Netflix.

"We are thrilled to bring this group of visionary filmmakers together with such esteemed industry executives at the 2015 Los Angeles Film Festival. Our annual Fast Track finance market is a unique opportunity for filmmakers to gain critical support for their films, and for the executives to discover some of the outstanding talent that Film Independent curates and develops year-round through our Artist Development initiatives. This year's projects are truly exceptional,” said Film Independent director of artist development Jennifer Kushner.

Film Independent presented two Alfred P. Sloan grants to support films that explore science and technology themes or that depict scientists, engineers and mathematicians in engaging and innovative ways at the annual Fast Track Welcome Dinner.

Film Independent’s inaugural Alfred P. Sloan Distribution Grant was awarded to Michael Almereyda’s Experimenter produced by Uri Singer, Fabio Golombek, Isen Robbins, and Aimee Schoof. The filmmakers will receive $50,000 in funds to support the release of the film. Experimenter premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival and was acquired by Magnolia Pictures with a release planned for fall 2015. Additionally, the sixth annual Alfred P. Sloan Fast Track Grant, a $20,000 production grant, was awarded to writer/director Elena Greenlee and producer Márcia Nunes for their narrative fiction film in development, Dark Forest.

The ten projects shortlisted are: A Paso de Mangles by co-writer/director Paola Mendoza; Dark Forest by writer/director Elena Greenlee; Ethel by producer Anil Baral; First Match by producers Chanelle Elaine and Veronica Nickel; Give Me Liberty (writer/producer/director Kirill Mikhanovsky); Last Call (documentary) by director/producer Lana Wilson; Millie to the Moon by director Jen McGowan; Shot in the Dark (documentary) by director Dustin Nakao Haider; The Bad Kids (documentary) by director Lou Pepe; and Wild Nights by director Kyle Henry.
