3rd Mediterranean Co-production Forum announces 20 selected projects
- Third edition to take place on October 26-27
The Mediterranean Co-Production Forum is ready for its third edition. The Apulia Film Commission Foundation, in co-operation with the Apulia Region – Internationalization Services for Development, Work and Innovation, has just announced this year's dates, October 26-27.
The forum will be held in Bari's Cineporto, where the audiovisual professionals will be able to present their projects and share their opinions.
The forum has been set up with the patronage of Eurimages, in collaboration with ACE and Sophia Meetings. It aims to help producers find potential financers for their projects, which are "almost ready and waiting for the final budget boost". Alberto La Monica and Apulia Film Commission selected the 20 projects, which will be presented by their respective producers.
Silvio Maselli, director of Apulia Film Commission, said: "After the great participation and results obtained in the first two editions, the Foundation has once again chosen to use the Forum as an opportunity to bring professionals from the cinema industry as well as the larger audiovisual industry together. This event enriches the building strategy of the audiovisual sector, allowing the exchange of experiences and financial resources, as well as facilitating making movies in Apulia."
