Director Hans Petter Moland

At the 14th edition of the Berlinale Co-Production Market, part of the European Film Market, which will be held from 12-15 February, 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.

To aid the producers of the selected projects and companies, the Berlinale Co-Production Market team is organising a total of approximately 1,200 one-on-one meetings with interested potential partners from a participant pool made up of 550 producers, world sales agents, broadcasters, distributors, film funds and financiers from all across the world. Among the directors of the selected projects, several familiar names can be found, such as Hans Petter Moland, Agnieszka Holland, Lou Ye, Celina Murga, Anne Zohra Berrached and Laura Bispuri.

For the official project selection, 20 promising feature-film projects with budgets ranging from €750,000 to €11 million were chosen from a total of 323 submissions. In the context of the Rotterdam Berlinale Express, three additional film projects will take part in both CineMart Rotterdam and the German market. Ten newcomers to the world of international film production will also be presenting their projects at the Talent Project Market. In the Berlinale Directors category, three projects by directors whose previous films were shown at the Berlinale will be presented. There are also three awards available: the Eurimages Co-Production Development Award, the VFF Talent Highlight Award and the ARTE International Prize.
