We will publish our next call for the TIES THAT BIND applications in June 2021.
TIES THAT BIND is the leading training programme for European-Asian co-production. The participants will work with top-notch industry professionals from both continents. The sessions will focus on script development, co-production between Asia and Europe, public and private financing in the two regions, marketing and distribution, and the legal aspects of co-production. They will meet leading Asian and European sales agents, funders and potential co-producers during the FOCUS ASIA in Udine and the Southeast Asian Film Financing (SAFF) Forum in Singapore.
TTB is targeted at European & Asian producers. We will select 5 European and 5 Asian producers. In addition to feature fiction films, we are open as well to TV series or animation fiction films in development. We encourage that you bring your directors to the workshop.
We also welcome applications of European professionals interested in working with Asia such as sales agents, financiers, distributors, festival programmers, co-production market representatives, or European producers who wish to focus on their career development. We will select 5 career participants to be an active part of the group. In order to benefit from all aspects of the programme, they will be able to partner with project participants and attend the meetings with the experts and decision makers together.
The 15 selected participants will attend 2 workshops:
Workshop 1 will take place online from November 16-26 & December 1-4, 2020. Workshop 2 will be organised in June 2021 in Italy.
