Berlinale Series Market & Conference
Chile in Focus
Stand 138, 1st floor, Gropius Bau
Berlinale Series Market & Conference, a joint initiative of the European Film Market, the Berlinale Co-Production Market and Berlinale Talents, organised in close collaboration with Berlinale Series, will once again host professionals from around the world for its three-day event and present an exciting programme of screenings, a selection of projects, inspiring talks as well as networking events.
Within the framework of this year’s Berlinale Series Market & Conference, two events will highlight Chile’s strengths in serial content.
The Berlinale Series Market Opening Reception is co-hosted by the Ministry of Culture, Art and Heritage Chile & Cinema Chile
(access by invitation only).
The principle “local product but global exploitation” does not only apply to original programming by the global streamers, but also to independently financed international co-productions. The co-producers from Invercine & Wood (Chile) and Story House Pictures (Germany) as well as the distributor Red Arrow Studios International (UK) of the television series “Dignity” will shed some light on how to develop, finance, produce and exploit audio-visual content without being a mere service provider for a commissioning streamer.
