- With selected projects (Project Selection): Participants of the Berlinale Co-Production Market can request 30-minute one-on-one meetings with representatives of the projects in the official selection as well as with the Talent Project Market and television series makers in the CoPro Series selection, all of which are listed in the project catalogue.
- With selected companies (Company Matching Programme): Further individual meetings can be requested with five 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.
On the third day of the Berlinale Co-Production Market around six selected drama series projects seeking international co-production and financing partners are presented.
