Berlin calls for submissions

Film fest preps Berlinale production market

COLOGNE — The Berlin Film Festival has called for submissions for the fifth Berlinale co-production market, which will run Feb. 10-12.

The market provides a platform for producers to meet co-producers, financers, distribs, as well as reps from TV stations and funding orgs.

The European Union’s Media program and German funder MDM are partners of the market.

Projects, which must be submitted by Nov. 1, should have budgets ranging between $2.7 million and $13.5 million.

The fest expects 450 participants at the market.

“For 2½ days we provide a kind of home for producers and financial backers during the festival,” Berlinale topper Dieter Kosslick said. “As we all know, many of the best babies are conceived at home.”

So far, the mart has birthed 51 projects. “Salir pitando,” by Alvaro Fernandez Armero, will open in Spanish theaters on Sept. 21, and Sergei Bodrov’s “Mongol” just premiered at the Toronto Film Festival.
