Short Film Shot in Ecuador Looks for Financing to Shoot Feature at Independent Feature Project Market in New York

New York, NY (PRWEB) September 17, 2007

!Salve, Oh Patria!, a short film shot in Ecuador, South America by Spanish first-time director Alicia Diaz is set to look for financing to shoot the feature film at the IFP Market in New York City the week of September 16.

¡Salve, Oh Patria! or Fight For Country in English, is about an American widow living in Ecuador, South America, who struggles to get her son out of jail after he is imprisoned during an uprising against the government. Her son Gabriel is determined to follow in his popular Socialist father’s footsteps after his assassination by powerful American oil men.

The film was shot in the summer of 2007 in Ecuador by a production team from the New York Film Academy that consisted of a crew from Spain, India, and the US. In addition, there was a local crew that was a huge help to these experienced film students.

“The goal was always to produce this short film to showcase our talents to potential financiers — my vision was to produce a short film first, participate in the film festival circuit and then start raising funds to finish the feature,” says Alicia Diaz, writer, director and producer of the film.

Production company NetHead Films, Inc., headed up by Producer William Henao has recently launched the website for the film complete with trailer, production notes, photo gallery, crew bios and more.

“We’re looking forward to attending the IFP Market and conference to showcase our work and hopefully get the financing needed to work on the feature film to be shot in 2008,” says William Henao.

Electronic Film Market Online, Inc. (d/b/a eFilm Market Online), with a URL of, the Internet marketplace for worldwide buyers and sellers to search and market feature motion pictures, short films, and screenplays, announced today that its President, Oliver Robins was a conference panelist at the 2004 International Festival of Short Films in Palm Springs, California. Over 300 films from 29 countries were presented on three screens for seven days, August 29 – September 5, 2004.

At the panel titled, “How To Market Your Short”, Robins, along with a group of invited guests, discussed how short filmmakers can spotlight their films after attending the film festivals. The panelists were in agreement that filmmakers must market their short films long after the festivals conclude to garner financing and support for their next production.

Among the promotional methods discussed to spotlight a film was to maintain an on-going Internet presence after a short subject completes its run on the film festival circuit. A concern addressed by attendee was how would they direct potential web viewers of their film to their website.

In response to this important issue, Robins shared with the audience: “Since eFilm Market is an online worldwide film market, it’s easy for filmmakers to gain access to their internet audience by listing and streaming their films at the Site. We have created a hub for all buyers and sellers of film entertainment to gather”.

Another question asked by an attendee: “Is it possible to sell my short film”. The panelists discussed that there are worldwide distributors looking for short film entertainment. eFilm Market Online addresses this question as it provides a market for worldwide buyers and sellers. Filmmakers and their representatives can upload all pertinent information to sell their film titles in a couple of minutes without having any advanced computer knowledge. And likewise, potential buyers, with a few key strokes, can preview all of the same information that they would find at an offline market, and bid for a film’s rights without ever leaving their chair.
