Film producers, buyers, sellers and festival programmers have continually asked our unique business reports be published in current formats for the world film business as it is today and we are now offering them once again.
Other reports and white papers will continue to be created to meet the needs of the international film business or we can accept commissions to develop specific and individually needed reports. SydneysBuzz: The Blog will alert readers of their availability.
