Call for Projects

Baltic Event Co-Production Market and POWR Baltic Stories Exchange
November 29 – December 1, 2017, Tallinn

Entry deadline: August 15, 2017

The Call for Projects for Baltic Event Co-Production Market and POWR Baltic Stories Exchange is now open!

Baltic Event Co-Production Market, presenting the Eurimages Co-Production Development Award in the amount of 20 000 Euros, provides a perfect opportunity to find financiers, co-producers and sales agents for your project during an intensive two days of pre-arranged one-on-one meetings. Projects from Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Iceland, Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Romania, Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia, Russia, Georgia and Ukraine, plus projects from Flanders, our 2017 Focus Region, are eligible for submission. Projects from other countries looking for co-production partners or service providers in these countries are also accepted.

POWR Baltic Stories Exchange trains writers to deliver a good pitch and find a producer at the public project presentation as well as get industry feedback through pre-arranged POWR Meetings with carefully selected Baltic Event participants. Seven screenplays in the early stages of development from the Nordic and Baltic countries as well as Flanders, BE Focus Region, will be selected. The workshop is organised by Baltic Event in collaboration with the region’s Creative Europe MEDIA Desks and TorinoFilmLab.

Baltic Event, the largest international co-production market in North-Eastern Europe taking place in collaboration with Industry@Tallinn of Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival, returns with some exciting innovations for its 16th edition – a special programme is held for projects with transmedia, multiplatform, and/or interactive potential at the Co-Production Market, Works in Progress projects will have a chance to be linked to the GameJam hackathon connecting filmmakers with game developers in order to bridge the gap between these two lucrative sectors, and separate sessions will take place for filmmakers looking for alternative financing and private investors considering to enter the film industry.

Since 2002, Baltic Event has showcased around 500 film projects, many of which have reached the silver screens across the globe and enjoyed successful festival runs. We are honoured to have had our projects selected to Cannes, Berlinale, Venice, Karlovy Vary, Warsaw, Cairo, Tribeca, etc. and earn Golden Globes and Oscars nominations.
