HBF+Europe: first selections announced

The International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR) has announced the first selection for their new HBF+Europe: minority co-production support scheme. Supported by Creative Europe's MEDIA sub-programme, the fund provides substantial financial support to European producers serving as minority co-producers in feature films with theatrical potential.

A total of €220,000 has been awarded to four promising film projects from Ukraine, Colombia, Iran and Thailand, co-produced with companies from Germany, France and the Netherlands.

The selection includes projects by award-winning directors such as Myroslav Slaboshpytskiy (The Tribe) and Anocha Suwichakornpong (Mundane History).

More information and a full list of the selected films can be found on the IFFR website.
