Until October 10, experienced producers from around the world may submit new feature-length film projects in need of co-producers and financiers to the 16th Berlinale Co-Production Market (February 9 – 13, 2019). The project budget should be between one and 20 Million euros and at least 30% of the financing or local production support should already be in place.

Producers from Latin and Central America, the Caribbean, Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia, South Asia, the Caucasus, Greece, Spain, Portugal and Southeastern Europe are also encouraged to submit their lower-budget projects with budgets starting at 750,000 euros.

Once again in 2019, three promising new “Berlinale Directors” projects will be chosen. This is a selection of a few new projects by directors who have had films presented at the Berlinale in previous years. Since these projects are likely to be of particular interest to prospective co-producers, they may be submitted without the full 30% of financing in place, in order to provide early practical support in these projects’ search for co-production partners.
By the end of this year approximately 25 feature film projects will have been selected from all submissions to the Berlinale Co-Production Market.
