Essential Legal Framework

European Co-Production - Legal and Financial Aspects

October 20-22, 2022 (excl. travel days)

In the age of limited resources and an abundance of content, co-productions are becoming increasingly crucial for the success of European films and series. Juggling a broad variety of complex issues on a daily basis before the pandemic, co-productions today face a whole new set of challenges. How will last year’s productions stops, closed theatres and changed distribution chains affect co-productions long-term? What are the learnings from the past year and how can co-producers implement these in their work going forward? How can companies along the value chain ensure the sustainable development of their businesses in volatile times?


​​​​​​​EUROPEAN CO-PRODUCTION tackles these complex issues head-on. The workshop offers exclusive insights into the making of several recent European co-productions (feature films and drama series) as well as a comprehensive overview of the legal and financial elements of co-productions. Inside reports, hands-on tips and interactive learning will support participating professionals in handling the changing complexities of European co-productions successfully.


The workshop is open to professionals along the value chain working in the co-production of feature films and drama series. Participants will benefit from the experience of acclaimed European producers and leading experts in 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.

Venue and Accommodation

NH Berlin Alexanderplatz

NH Berlin Alexanderplatz

The NH Berlin Alexanderplatz hotel, a 4-star hotel located opposite the Volkspark Friedrichshain park in Berlin, was completely renovated in 2018.  It is a 9-minute tram ride from Alexanderplatz Square and offers air-conditioned rooms, an international restaurant and a green terrace.

The 225 spacious rooms at the NH Berlin Alexanderplatz feature modern décor, are chic, bright, wheelchair accessible and prepared for the visually impaired as well. All rooms include cable TV and a modern bathroom. Free Wi-Fi is provided in the whole hotel.

International cuisine and German specialties are served in the NH Berlin’s first-floor restaurant, which is furnished with glass panels and leather seating. The classic-style bar has a large drinks menu. Meals and drinks can be enjoyed on the terrace in warmer months.

The hotel is full of quirky details – like the 50,000 bees kept on the roof, which happily produce honey for your breakfast.  For relaxing, the spa is a favorite.
