"IFP'S Independent Feature Film Market, held in September is the primary vehicle for IFP, says executive diector Catherine Tait. The September market invites more than 400 projects in various stages of development and completion to New York City to meet with buyers and financiers. At the same time of year, IFP presents its Gotham Awards, which include a $20,000-plus Open Palm prize to a new and needy filmmaker. In an effort to promote American independents internationally, the organization underwrites 10 filmmakers' trips to Rotterdam Cinemart. IFP's annual "From Script to Screen" conference takes place in April and invites projects for a prize competition. In conjunction with the Film Society of Lincoln Center, IFP also sponsors "Independents! Night," which screens 16 projects seeking funding throughout the year. In addition to the various seminars, IFP continues to inform via its website and, with its sister organization IFP/West (in California), publishes FImMaker magazine quarterly. Member discounts on goods and services range from Kodak film stock to postproduction services. Other IFP regionals are located in Chicago, Minneapolis and Florida."
