EWA Network goes Cannes Marché du Film Co-Production Night
European Women's Audiovisual Network will have a large delegation of talented filmmakers among 400 production experts in the famous Marché du Film Co-Production Night. The Co-Production Night is the perfect event to match up with potential co-producers and catch-up with representatives of the most important international co-production markets who will facilitate the matchmaking.
During the first part of the cocktail, there will be a series of informal stand-up speed meetings in which each participant will meet at least 5 different professionals. The evening will end with the ‘Co-Pro Night Live Band’, featuring the best (and worst!) of ’80s pop music!
