Steered by Emmanuel Fleurantin and Jérémy Zelnik (read our interview), the online Coprocity platform works in partnership with 13 co-production markets (Cinéfondation Workshop, La Fabrique Cinéma, Ventana Sur, When East Meets West, TorinoFilmLab, Thessaloniki - Agora and Agora Docs -, Connecting Cottbus, Baltic Event, Meeting Point Vilnius, New Nordic Films Haugesund, Les Arcs Industry Village, Sofia Meetings and Cinelink) to help film entities (distributors, international sales agents, TV networks, co-producers, …) keep a watchful eye on the progress of the projects presented during these markets, whilst also making or developing professional contacts in order to facilitate development and funding.
The 15 projects which earn themselves the most follow-up requests on the platform will battle it out for the first Coprocity Development Award (endowed with 5,000 Euros), which is set to be handed out on 20 September by a jury composed of international sales agent Clémence Lavigne (The Party Sales), distributor Vladimir Kokh (KMBO) and the author of this article.
