From 2024 the Co-Production Forum of the Brussels Short Film Festival & the Co-Production Market of the Brussels International Film Festival merge into one event: the Brussels CoProMarket.

The Brussels CoProMarket is an initiative that aims at supporting promising short and feature films in development and connecting them with potential partners. The event has been divided in three different sections:

  1. Short Film Sessions,specially designed for short films
  2. Feature Films: Gap Financing Sessions, created with a focus on helping European producers with finding Belgian minority co-productions, a selection of European projects specifically looking for Belgian collaborators
  3. Feature Films: 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 Ă  Marseille (MCM), the Music & Cinema Award is granted to one of the selected projects in Gap Financing Sessions or Up: Up-and-coming Producers. Starting in 2024, a selected short film project will also receive an MCM award.
