The Berlinale Residency is now in its third round. Filmmakers who have screened their first films with success at international
festivals and cinemas, have until March 16, 2015 to submit feature films, documentary or cross-media projects which they are currently developing. Eligible projects must have one producer in place in order to be selected.
The “Berlin 24/7” program Berlinale Residency invites three filmmakers to Berlin, where they will be able to work on their projects from September 1 to
November 30, 2015. Besides individual meetings with script consultants and mentors from the film industry, their producers will also be invited to Berlin
for a workshop towards the end of their stay. In order to find further co-producers and financiers, the filmmakers and their producers will return to
Berlin to participate in the Berlinale Co-Production Market in February 2016.
“We are delighted that with the Berlinale Residency programme we again have the opportunity to support not only filmmakers but also producers in developing
their film projects. The Residency has already borne fruit, as can be seen in Sacha Polak’s film Zurich, which is having its world premiere in this year’s
Forum,” says Festival Director Dieter Kosslick.
