brussels Co-Production Market
The Brussels Co-Production Market 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:
- the Gap Financing Sessions, in keeping with the initial goals of the Market, a selection of European projects specifically looking for Belgian collaborators,
- UP: Up-and-coming Producers, a section specifically designed for producers in their early career.
The selected projects are presented during pitch sessions and one-to-one meetings. Industry professionals who wish to meet with the project holders are invited to register as attendees.
As part of our partnership with the Festival International Music & Cinema à Marseille (MCM), the Music & Cinema Award is granted to one of the selected projects.
