BERLIN — The Berlinale Co-Production Market is inviting producers from around the globe to submit projects for next year’s event.
Organizers are accepting submissions through Oct. 30 from experienced producers with projects that have at least 30% of their required financing in place.
The sixth Berlinale Co-Production Market runs Feb. 8-10, during the Berlin Intl. Film Festival.
The market helps producers find potential co-producers, financiers, sales agents, international distributors and TV reps by coordinating pre-scheduled individual meetings and offering case studies, theme talks, speed matchings and other networking opportunities for the approximately 450 participants.
Project submission forms are available online. Of the projects that have participated at the Co-Production Market in its first five years, 69 films have been completed — a success rate of 35%.
So far this year, the Berlin, Cannes and Venice film festivals each included a Co-Production Market title in their competition lineup: Luigi Falorni’s “Heart of Fire,” Kornel Mundruczo’s “Delta” and “Milk,” by Semih Kaplanoglu, respectively.
Ten other films screened at international fests and opened in cinemas this year.
