MANNHEIM MEETING PLACE – 13th-16th NOVEMBER 2017 INTERNATIONAL CO-PRODUCTION FORUM

Providing ON-THE-JOB SUPPORT in int’l co-production FOR START-UP ARTHOUSE PRODUCERS  on their first or second feature lead projects. We accompany you and your project from first presentation to matching with experienced minority producers and beyond. Participants from all around the world are welcome. Once prepared, your Project Outline will go world-wide to relevantexperienced working co-producers allied with MMP. Up to mid-October, professional interest  and feedback from co-producers and experts will be re-integrated into each project as needed, thus helping optimize your offer. Our minority producers decide whichprojects are interesting for them – those are then invited to Mannheim with their Producers each November for further discussion. RESULTS: The 4 Final projects at MMP 2015 have now given a 75% shooting rate, with the remaining project undergoing further  development at Cannes Cinefondation Residence 2017. 50% of 2016 projects have matched – we wait (July 2017)  to see how they fund.
