Two UK projects selected for Berlinale Co-production Market

The MEDIA-funded Berlinale Co-production Market (22-26 February) has chosen two UK films to participate this year.

The 17th edition of the market will highlight 36 feature film projects from 34 countries, whose producers are looking for co-production partners. With 1,500 pre-organised one-to-one meetings, filmmakers can meet international co-producers, film fund representatives, sales executives, TV broadcasters, distributors, and financiers from all over the world.

The two UK projects are:

  • Winterreise, directed by Alex Helfrecht is one of 21 Official Project selections. These 21 films were chosen from 302 submissions, with budgets that range from €750,000 to €5 million.

  • Little Boy Blue, directed by Tommaso Pitta was selected as part of the Talent Project Market strand, organised in co-operation with Berlinale Talents. With only ten projects picked from 166 submissions, the newcomer producers are granted the opportunity to present their films at the market.

The full list of selected projects can be found on the Berlinale website.
