Germany’s Arri Group is launching a support program for international filmmakers at the Toronto Intl. Film Festival.

The Munich-based company, whose operations range from motion picture camera and lighting system to film production and post-production activities, said Sept. 8 that its International Support Program initiative would assist filmmakers who are working on “distinctive projects with an international edge.”

As part of the program, Arri will offer support ranging from co-production, development and access to state-of-the-art Arri equipment, to post-production and international sales.

The company will officially unveil the program in Toronto. Arri reps from Munich, Berlin, Los Angeles, Toronto, New York and New Orleans will be at the festival to meet with filmmakers.

“We like to find ways to give back to the industry and support new talent, so we have created the International Support Program to emphasize our ongoing commitment,” said Arri executive board member Joerg Pohlman.

Arri’s support will be tailored to the individual needs selected projects, the company said, adding that regional constraints no longer existed as the group has subsidiaries across the globe.
