- 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
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.
At the Country Tables experts provide information about production conditions and co-production opportunities in ”their” country during informal round-table talks.
At Speed Matching events, participating producers can develop new contacts during informal five-minute meetings.
Breakfast & Books (Books at Berlinale)
Launched in 2006, Books at Berlinale was the world’s first market for literary adaptations affiliated with an A-festival.
At Breakfast & Books, a joint breakfast attended by interested producers, international publishers and literary agents present about ten pre-selected books that show promising potential for literary adaptation.
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.
