News - Berlinale Co-Production Market

At the 14th edition of the Berlinale Co-Production Market (February 12 to 15, 2017) a selection of 36 promising feature-film projects from 29 countries will come together with a wide range of potential co-production and funding partners from around the world. In addition, the market will be presenting five respected production companies in the scope of their exclusive “Company Matching Programme”.

For the official project selection, 20 promising feature-film projects with budgets ranging from 750,000 euros to eleven million euros were chosen from a total of 323 submissions. They will be presented by internationally experienced producers and have all either already secured production funding from their native countries or have at least been able to cover 30% of their projected financing needs to date.

Ten newcomers to the world of international film production will also be presenting their projects at the “Talent Project Market”, which is organised in co-operation with Berlinale Talents. These attendees were chosen from an additional 178 submitted projects.

The selected projects and companies can be seen here.

The "Books at Berlinale" and CoPro Series selections will be announded later in January.

There are at least two films screening in the festival programme of the upcoming Berlinale which were presented at the Berlinale Co-Production Market as projects in previous years and met partners: Una mujer fantástica (A fantastic woman) by Sebastián Lelio, which is part of the Competition, and Mulher do pai (Nalu on the Border) by Cristiane Oliveira, which is being shown in Generation 14plus.

One film that was once presented at the Berlinale Co-Production Market, premiered this summer in Karlovy Vary: The Next Skin by Isaki Lacuesta and Isa Campo. A Yellow Bird by K Rajagopal had its premiere at Cannes in the Critics Week.
