Upcoming Deadlines

Berlinale Co-Production Market

Call for Entries until October 21, 2015 

Until October 21, experienced producers from around the world may submit new feature film projects to the Berlinale Co-Production Market 2016. The projects should be suitable for international co-production, have either already secured 30% of the financing or at least the production funding from the home country, and be budgeted between one and twenty million euros.

As in the previous two years, the budget minimum has been waived for projects from Greece, Spain and Portugal, in order to support producers from these countries to participate in the international market in spite of the difficult financing conditions at home.By December, approximately 25 feature film projects will be selected from the entries for the Berlinale Co-Production Market. Additionally, three projects are currently being developed by the filmmakers Ella Manzheeva, Fernando Eimbcke and Daniel Borgman as part of the Berlinale Residency. Another ten projects will be presented at the “Talent Project Market” in cooperation with Berlinale Talents.

At the 13th Berlinale Co-Production Market (February 14-16, 2016), the team will again organise for the selected projects over 1000 targeted one-on-one meetings with potential co-producers, financiers, world sales agents, distributors, as well as representatives of TV channels and funding bodies. Participants looking for projects in which to become involved as co-producers may apply as from November 2015.

Over 200 feature films selected for previous Berlinale Co-Production Markets have been realised to date, i.e., nearly 50% of the projects have been made into films.Five earlier projects from four different continents that were successfully realised as co-productions played at the 2015 Berlin International Film Festival: Big Father, Small Father and Other Stories by Phan Dang Di, Zurich by Sacha Polak and The Boda Boda Thieves by the collective Yes!

The Here After by Magnus von Horn and Embrace of the Serpent by Ciro Guerra, which were also completed this year, played in Cannes, while Frenzy by Emin Alper and The Memory of Water by Matías Bize recently premiered in Venice.

This summer, German audiences had the opportunity to watch a few of the fruits of the Berlinale Co-Production Market in the cinemas: Zurich (Die getäuschte Frau) by Sacha Polak, Las Insoladas - Sonnenstiche by Gustavo Taretto and Coconut Hero by Florian Cossen opened in July resp. August, and September 24 sees the theatrical release of Am Ende ein Fest (The Farewell Party) by Sharon Maymon and Tal Granit.

The Berlinale Co-Production Market is part of the European Film Market.The main partners of the Berlinale Co-Production Market have been the MDM - Mitteldeutsche Medienförderung since 2004, and Creative Europe - MEDIA, a programme of the European Union since 2005.Application forms and general guidelines for submitting projects for 2016 may be found at www.efm-berlinale.de

EXTENDED DEADLINE: EAVE Producers Workshop 2016 - September 25, 2015

EAVE, European Audiovisual Entrepreneurs, is one of the leading training and development providers for producers in Europe, renowned for its EAVE Producers Workshop.

Who is it for?

EAVE is aimed at producers, both fiction and documentary, who are already working in the film and television industries who wish to begin to operate on a European wide basis by increasing their knowledge of producing and co-producing in Europe and by building up a pan European professional network. We also welcome applications from associated branches of the industry – e.g. commissioning, funding, legal and finance, festivals & markets, media administration. Each year fifty participants are selected from most of the EU countries and beyond and take part in three one-week long workshops.

How does it work?

Half the participants attend the course with projects and it is an excellent means of development through intense focus on the project with colleagues and experts throughout the year. Most participants attending with a project also bring their writer for the first two weeks which enables producer and writer to benefit together from one-to-one sessions with script experts. 

During the first two workshops, participants work within groups led by experienced producers and with several experts on script analysis, development and production financing, legal aspects of co-production, marketing, pitching, packaging and more. In the third workshop 50-60 Decision Makers (commissioning editors, national and regional media funds, sales agents, etc.) join the participants to discuss the projects, companies and careers of the participants, a process which offers unusual access to Europe's Decision Makers. 

EAVE graduates join a unique network of active European producers which forms one of the backbones of the industry. Furthermore, EAVE participants and members benefit from our partnerships with the leading European film festivals and markets where EAVE facilitates graduate participation. 

Timeline

The interviews with a pre-selection of candidates will take place in autumn 2015 and the selection will be announced in December 2015. The 3 workshops take place during March 3 - 10 in Luxembourg (LU), June (dates TBC) in Lithuania (LT) and October/November (dates TBC) in Prague (CZ), 2016.

DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: September 25, 2015

Check out www.eave.org for more information and the application form or contact us!
