Bridging a gap sounds familiar? Submit your current film project to European Work in Progress Cologne – a valuable opportunity to find partners in the final phase of film production.

The preparations for the first edition of European Work in Progress Cologne (October 9-11, 2018) embedded in the 28. Film Festival Cologne are in full swing. Film projects from all over Europe have been submitted and entries are still possible until August 15, 2018.

  • European Work in Progress Cologne aims to enable the final or additional financing of European high-profile productions and co-productions that are intended to connect with a wider International audience as well as to provide you with a valuable network. Our focus is on creative European fictional features with a strong quality appeal in the phase of (post-)production that are seeking partners, financiers, distribution and/or world sales.
  • Around 25 productions and co-productions will be selected and presented to a circle of International industry professionals with plenty of time for one-to-one meetings during the event.By the time of the pitch, an excerpt that adequately represents your film will be required. Each presentation is scheduled for a max. of 15 minutes. Once your project is invited, we will participate in the costs for your traveling and, of course, take care of your accommodation.
  • A jury will award three projects with vouchers for post-production services worth EUR 20,000,- and EUR 15,000,- endowed by the MMC Studios as well as a voucher for sound-post-production services in the amount of EUR 10,000,- endowed by K13.

European Work in Progress Cologne will be accompanied by various panel discussions in cooperation with Creative Europe Desk NRW and EAVE.
