Berlinale Co-Production Market expands

Event adds five projects from Residency

BERLIN — The Berlinale Co-Production Market is growing this year.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the event has added five more projects from its inaugural Berlinale Residency, and expanded its Company Matching program that allows internationally active production firms from around the world to introduce themselves to international filmmakers.

The Co-Production Market, which runs Feb. 10-12, will present 38 new feature film projects and seven production companies to 450 potential co-production and financing partners.

Among the projects are four U.S. titles, including James Bolton’s “A Secret Life,” from Charleville Films and Myriad Pictures, and John Michael Morgan’s “The Cavanaughs,” from DViant Films.

In addition to the official selection, the Co-Production Market also includes three projects from its Rotterdam-Berlinale Express initiative, among them Matt Porterfield’s U.S. title “Sollers Point”; 10 from the Talent Project Market — a partnership with the fest’s Talent Campus educational platform; and five from the Berlinale Residency program, which invites five international filmmakers to Berlin to work on their films.

The Residency’s participants include Chile’s Matias Bize with “The Memory of Water”; Rebecca Daly of Ireland (“Mammal”); Filipino helmer Raya Martin (“The Empire”); “Soy Negro,” from Iranian filmmaker Rafi Pitts; and, from the Netherlands, Sacha Polak with “Zurich.”

Among the companies making their introduction are Canada’s Foundry Films; French shingle Agat Films; Bossa Nova from Brazil; Egypt’s Film Clinic; Friland Produksjon from Norway; Dutch group Lemming Film; and Germany’s Rohfilm.

“We would like to create a platform for companies to become acquainted and broaden their horizons — to go beyond thinking from just one project to the next,” said Co-Production Market project director Sonja Heinen.

The Berlinale runs Feb. 7-17.
