Participation - Berlinale Co-Production Market

The 18th Berlinale Co-Production Market will take place from Saturday to Wednesday, 13-17 February 2021, during the 71st Berlin International Film Festival.

Each year, producers from around the world can submit feature projects for the Official Selection and drama series projects for Co-Pro Series.

The calls for feature film and drama series projects will open in July (Talent Project Market, deadline early September) and August respectively (Berlinale Co-Production Market, deadline late September/October). Novels for Books at Berlinale can be submitted in October/November - please find details on all these programmes below.

International producers, financiers, sales agents, distributors, representatives of funding bodies and TV channels looking for projects to participate in, can applied to participate without a project in November/December.

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 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 festival and/or European Film Market 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 festival/EFM accreditations, please see Professionals
