The American Film Market

This week, 7,000 film folks from 70 countries will converge in Santa Monica to do half-billion dollars in production and distribution deals. Since 1981, the AFM has been known as the place to sell and find international financing for B-movies and genre films. It's also become an increasingly important venue for major studios' private labels to buy quality foreign films and sell their wares to the world. We go inside the film bazaar that is the American Film Market with reporter Dana Harris, filmmaker Lloyd Kaufman, sales agent ChevonneOShaughnessy, and directors Zach Snyder and Edgar Wright
