5 Things You Need to Know to Co-Produce in Europe

What is a co-production? How do you decide whether a project is fit for co-production? What do you if you wish to co-produce your project? How to choose your partners? These are the questions our expert Alessia Sonaglioni will answer during the first Online Hang-Out: 5 Things You Need to Know to Co-Produce in Europe.

The co-productions contribute actively to the dynamism of the film industry. Producers are looking for new ways to develop their projects, within the framework that suits best the needs of their films. An international co-production raises questions such as film nationality or whether a co-production can be motivated on finances or also artistically. Co-productions can be bilateral or multilateral, and can also include non-European partners. Multiple nationality is a legal advantage that generates direct economic benefits (funding) and indirect (box office).
