brussels Co-Production Forum


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 call for projects for the 2022 edition will be published shortly.

MUSIC & CINEMA AWARD - Music & Cinema - Festival International du FIlm à Marseille

The project The Fury, directed by Gemma Blasco and produced by Mireia Graell (Ringo Media, Spain), was granted the award by Music & Cinema – Festival International du Film à Marseille. The project has been automatically selected for the European Market for Film Music Composition and the duo director-producer will have the opportunity to meet with composers during the next edition of the festival Music & Cinema, in March 2022.
