European Work in Progress Cologne 2018 (c) Juliane Guder

The response to the second edition of European Work in Progress Cologne has been overwhelming: more than 100 film projects from 34 European countries have reached us so far. Due to this amazing response we have decided to give more projects the chance to participate and thus, extended the deadline for submissions until August 15, 2019.

Up to 25 European (co-)productions will present film excerpts to a closed circle of international industry delegates comprised of experienced sales agents, distributors, producers, commissioning editors, financiers, festival representatives as well as other key decision makers and complementary partners. The initial edition was attended by around 250 professionals from 33 countries.

Furthermore to the pitching sessions and networking opportunities, EWIP will be accompanied by panel discussions in cooperation with Creative Europe Desk GermanyEAVE and MEDIA.

European Work in Progress Cologne is a networking platform with the aim to foster European arthouse cinema that is mainly supported by the Film- und Medienstiftung NRW, one of Europe’s leading film funding institutions and hosted by AG Verleih, the association of German independent film distributors, as well as our award sponsors ARRI MediaK13 StudiosEclairLAVAlabs and ZOOM Medienfabrik.
