Since 2003, the Franco-German Film Meetings bring together professionals from both countries to discuss common issues and dynamics. UniFrance, German Films and the Académie Franco-Allemande du Cinéma organize this event in partnership with the CNC and FFA, Arte France, Arte GEIE, and the Institut Français Allemagne, with support from PROCIREP.
This year's program will focus on a more participatory format and the following themes: public funding, collaboration with platforms, and the profound changes in the audiovisual landscape. Other discussions will focus on independent production, different approaches to strengthening diversity in the film and audiovisual sector, and lessons learned after 20 years of the Mini-Treaty.
Also on the agenda are four working groups (whose results will be presented during the event) on the following themes:
- Image education: what programs exist today and what projects should be planned for tomorrow?
- Producing for cinema or for television: what are the differences?
- Public financing at a crossroads; discussion based on Tomas Eskilsson's study
- Work/Life Balance in the film industry; a working group organized by Atelier Network
The coproduction market will allow selected French and German producers to present their projects in development (feature film, documentary, or TV series) in order to find a financial partner or coproducer.
The coproduction market call for projects and event registration closes on October 12, 2021.
