Participation - Berlinale Co-Production Market

The 18th Berlinale Co-Production Market will take place from Monday to Friday, March 1-5, 2021. This year, to support safety measures in the current global health situation, the event will be held online.

Producers from around the world have submitted feature projects for the Official Selection (deadline: September 30) and drama series projects for Co-Pro Series (deadline: October 15). The call for the Talent Project Market closed September 1. Novels for Books at Berlinale were submitted in October/November.

International producers, financiers, sales agents, distributors, representatives of funding bodies and TV channels looking for projects to participate in, can apply to participate without a project till January 14.

Please find details on the different programmes and applications below.

The selected projects will be announced mid January 2021 and the Catalogue with the selected projects is made available for all registered participants about three weeks prior to the event. Based on the projects' priorities and the meeting requests by interested potential co-producers and financiers, the Berlinale Co-Production Market team then matchmakes and organises ca. 1500 one-on-one meetings.

Terms of Participation

The Berlinale Co-Production Market is meant to be a “natural” meeting place for producers and financiers who are attending the Berlinale and European Film Market anyway. Therefore, the Berlinale Co-Production Market does not pay for travel and hotel costs, and does not provide festival accreditation for participants.

Participants are requested to take care of their online European Film Market Badge registration separately. Only accredited professionals will be able to log in and access the online features that are available to Berlinale Co-Production Market participants. For details on the EFM accreditation, please see Professionals
