Submissions to the Brussels Co-Production Forum are now closed. The selected projects will be announced by the beginning of June. Producers who wish to attend the event and meet with the selected project holders can still register down below.

This activity is organised in English.

The Brussels Co-Production Forum is an initiative that aims at supporting promising feature films in development and connecting them with potential partners. Created in 2016 with a focus on helping European producers with finding Belgian minority co-productions, it has been divided in two different sections:

  1. the Gap Financing Sessions, which maintains the original goals of the Forum,
  2. and UP: Up-and-coming Producers, a section specifically designed for producers in their early career.

The Brussels Co-Production Forum will be held for the 5th time in 2021, on September 7th and 8th.

Update - 31.03.21 - MUSIC & CINEMA AWARD

The Brussels Co-Production Forum is partnering up with the European Market for Film Music Composition, organized by and during the Festival International du Film d’Aubagne - MUSIC&CINEMA. Dedicated to producers and directors looking for a composer to develop an original score for their film project, the Market matches producer and director duos with several composers, who propose an original musical composition and try and convince them to work together during individual meetings.

One of the projects selected for either one of the Forum’s sections will be awarded a special prize by Aubagne’s team during the BRIFF. The awarded project will automatically be included in the European Market for Film Music Composition’s selection and will get the opportunity to meet with composers during the following edition of the Festival International du Film d’Aubagne - MUSIC&CINEMA, in March 2022.
