- With selected projects (Project Selection): Based on the Project Catalogue, participants of the Berlinale Co-Production Market can request 30-minute one-on-one meetings with representatives of projects in the official selection and the Talent Project Market
- With selected companies (Company Matching Programme): Further individual meetings can be requested with three internationally renowned production companies specially chosen for Company Matching. Here, it’s not about specific film projects, but more about getting together and discovering common ground on the company level – for example similar company strategies and new business ideas that could lead to future cooperation and new forms of international alliances
- With representatives from film funders (Fund Meetings): On the third day of the event, representatives from around 15 international film funding institutions will be available for 20-minute individual info meetings which can be booked in advance by the participating producers, subject to availability.
Case Studies on selected Berlinale films explore possibilities in financing and current trends in the field of international co-production.
Theme Talks on current production and financing issues offer a chance to exchange ideas with experts and other participants in a relaxed discussion.
The Countries-in-Focus presentations consist of short, moderated interviews where experts provide information about conditions of production as well as funding and coproduction opportunities in one of ‘their’ countries.
At Speed Matching events, participating producers can develop new contacts during informal five-minute meetings.
Books at Berlinale
Launched in 2006, Books at Berlinale was the world’s first market for literary adaptations affiliated with an A-festival.
At a pitching and get-together session, international publishers and literary agents present ten books which have excellent potential for film adaptation to interested producers.
Lunches & Cocktails
There is also a number of additional informal networking opportunities at the Berlinale Co-Production Market: lunches and cocktails offer participants further chances to meet and exchange ideas in a relaxed environment.
