Euromed plans Berlin conference

Group is drawn from 10 Mediterranean countries

MADRID — Euromed, the European Union-backed film and TV support initiative targeting 10 Mediterranean countries, will host its first regional conference during the upcoming Berlin Film Festival.

Taking place Feb. 10-11, and opened by Berlin fest director Dieter Kosslick and the European Commission’s Carla Montesi, the conference will be attended by leading filmmakers from the Middle East and southern Mediterranean countries.

Participants include Israeli helmer Amos Gitai, Palestinian director Michel Khleifi and Tunisian helmer Mahmoud Ben Mahmoud, plus producers involved in making pics with the region, such as Pandora’s Karl Baumgartner.

The conference aims to take stock of the achievements of the Euromed Audiovisual II Program, which has been up-and-run-ning for 14 months and continues through to 2008.

It also will analyze market-driven film strategies and film and TV policies that could be adopted by states in the region.

A key workshop held Feb. 8-9 in Berlin, Fight Against Piracy, will consider best practice, which could be adopted across the region.

Some 25 professionals from the region also will attend Mediterranean Films Crossing Borders over Feb. 6-11 in Berlin, a workshop aimed at honing participants’ skills in international promotion, sales and distribution from a film’s development stage.
