Deadline: October 22, 2014

Submissions are open for Call for Project for the 12th Berlinale Co-Production Market (February 8 to 10, 2015), which will take place as part of the 65th Berlin International Film Festival (February 5 to 15).

For this new edition, the organisation is again looking forward to finding new, fresh and promising projects that can be matchmade with potential co-production and financing partners to help them get made.

“We are inviting experienced producers from around the world who are looking for international partners to submit a feature-length fiction project with at least 30% financing (or the local production funding) in place. Budgets can range from 1 to 20 million Euro (for projects from Greece, Portugal and Spain the budget requirements will be waived). As a new special feature this year we also invite “Berlinale Directors” - directors whose films have been screened in one of our Festival Sections in previous years - to submit their new projects even if they do not fulfil our financing criteria,” say the organisers.

The deadline for project submissions is October 22, 2014.

The submission form and more detailed information - along with the specific project requirements for the Berlinale Co-Production Market - can be found online at:

This year’s selection will be made by December 22, 2014 and will be published in January.

The Berlinale Co-Production Market is a three-day service and networking platform designed for producers, financiers, sales agents, distributors, broadcasters and funding representatives who are working in international co-productions.

At the Berlinale Co-Production Market, you have the opportunity to present your project – if it is selected - to interested co-production partners and financiers in pre-scheduled one-on-one meetings.

Participants who attend without their own projects, can request meetings with the selected projects and the selected companies in the Company Matching Programme. They can visit the framework programme which offers opportunities to catch up on film financing news in case studies and workshops, get first-hand information on co-production opportunities in specific regions at the Countries-in-Focus Sessions, or learn from experts and exchange experiences in Theme Talks. Informal Speed Matchings, cocktail receptions and the Producers’ Lounge provide additional opportunities for networking.

39 projects from all over the world as well as five well-established companies in the Company Matching Programme were presented at the Berlinale Co-Production Market 2014. Some 500 international industry professionals attended the event and met in more than 1,000 pre-arranged individual meetings.
