US in Progress

US IN PROGRESS (formerly GOTHAM IN PROGRESS) is an industry event targeted at American independents and European buyers and producers that takes place in the scope of American Film Festival in Wrocław, in the south-west Poland. An initiative by New York- and Paris-based Black Rabbit Film is co-organized by New Horizons Association (organizer of the AFF, and the largest Poland's International Film Festival - New Horizons FF) with the support of City of Wrocław and Polish Film Institute.

US IN PROGRESS is the first industry event in Europe devoted entirely to US-indies.

US IN PROGRESS' main focus is on the completion and European distribution of American indie feature films at the post-production stage.

The organizers believe that even though there is a great artistic and cultural potential in American indie movies very few find their way to European audiences. We think that improving the presence of those works in European markets would lead first to a better comprehension of the diversity and wealth of the American culture and people and then to a deeper intercultural dialogue between Europe and the USA.

The objective of US IN PROGRESS is to gather European buyers and professionals (distributors, sales agents, festival programmers, etc.) in order to expose them to a selection of American independent feature films at the post-production stage.

This get-together offers US independent feature films marked by the stamp of singularity and independence the opportunity to exist at European festivals and European cinemas through meetings with movie professionals. Members of the different links in the chain leading to the release of these films are invited to discover them in ideal conditions with the objective to make a decisive contribution towards the success of these projects. The organizers offer a place of direct exchange with professionals as the stepping stone towards reaching new audiences.

The first edition (November 18-19, 2011) of the event had the form of two-day intense exclusive screenings (behind closed doors, for the registered guests only) and one-to-one meetings. 80 buyers and other professionals attended.
