The application for the “Talent Project Market” was open till September 2. As the Talent Project Market is organised in co-operation with Berlinale Talents, the application is made as part of the application for Berlinale Talents on the Talents website. Berlinale Talents alumni could also apply through their Talents profile. The selected participants will be announced mid-January 2020.

At the Talent Project Market, ten up-and-coming producers, present their projects to Berlinale Co-Production Market participants in one-on-one meetings and to meet experts to learn more about international co-production.

The Talent Projects are considered an "insider tip" – especially for producers interested in up-and-coming talent and who are keen on getting involved in projects at an earlier stage.

Three of the projects have the chance to pitch their project in front of the participants of the Berlinale Co-Production Market at the "VFF Talent Highlight Award" and one of them is awarded a monetary prize donated by VFF.
