The Valentine Gang and Scumbot have been selected along with 36 other projects and seven internationally renowned production companies for the tenth Berlinale Co-Production Market next month. Mammal has been chosen as a Berlinale Residency project.
The Co-Production Market aims to establish new partnerships and offer the opportunity to explore possibilities for collaborations. Participants of the market which include producers, sales agents, distributors, TV-broadcasters, funders and financiers may request 30-minute one-on-one meetings with selected projects as well as with the selected companies. It is expected that over 800 meetings will be scheduled for the two-day event.
Ripple World Pictures’ The Valentine Gang directed by Darragh Byrne and Scumbot, directed by James Cotter, are selected as one of 20 new international fictional film projects to have been chosen from 318 entries for the Co-Production Market for potential co-production and financing partners to explore. Rebecca Daly’s Mammal produced by Fastnet Films is one of the five projects to have been borne out of the first edition of the Berlinale Residency last autumn where scripts were developed over a four-month stay in Berlin.
The Berlinale Co-Production Market is part of the European Film Market and takes place February 10th – 12th 2013.
