Visit the Berlinale Co-Production Market website

The Berlinale Co-Production Market is held as part of the Berlin International Film Festival (Berlinale), and brings together over 500 experienced international producers, financiers, broadcasting representatives, sales agents and distributors for two and a half days of exclusive and concentrated networking. The event allows producers to introduce pre-selected, partly financed projects and find suitable co-production partners.

Based on the project information distributed in the project catalogue sent before the festival, potential co-producers and financiers can request meetings with the selected projects’ producers. These pre-arranged 30 minute meetings are the heart of the Berlinale Co-Production Market. In addition to the individual meetings participants can establish key contacts and network with one another, obtain first hand information on financing opportunities, and receive expert advice on production and co-production opportunities in their respective countries.
