Even under normal circumstances, any co-production juggles a broad variety of complex issues on a daily basis. Today, co-producers face a whole new set of challenges in light of the ongoing pandemic. How will production stops and closed theatres affect funding regulations? How will distribution chains change considering the growing importance of the streamers? What new criteria should your decisions be based on to ensure the sustainable development of your business?


​​​​​​​EUROPEAN CO-PRODUCTION tackles these complex questions head-on. The workshop offers exclusive insights into the making of several recent European co-productions as well as legal and finance in production and distribution. Hands-on tips help participants to successfully handle the changing complexities of European co-productions. NEW: As the mechanisms of co-production and co-financing are not limited to feature film, the workshop is now also open to professionals working in the co-production of TV series.


Participants benefit from the experience of acclaimed European producers and leading experts in media financing, production, sales and distribution. Various networking and group collaboration opportunities allow to connect with European colleagues and pave the way for new business opportunities.
