The Council of Europe’s Eurimages Fund has joined forces with co-production markets in Rotterdam (CineMart), Sarajevo (CineLink), Rome (New Cinema Network), Amsterdam (Cinekid) and Copenhagen (CPH:FORUM) to award the Eurimages Co-Production Development Award. The award, a cash prize of €30,000 euros for feature films at Rotterdam, Sarajevo and Rome film festivals, €20,000 in Amsterdam and €15,000 for documentaries at Copenhagen film festival, has been created to promote the Fund’s role in encouraging European co-production from the initial stages of a project.
To be eligible, projects must participate in one of these markets and be designed from the outset as a European co-production, other than in purely financial terms, between at least two member states of the Eurimages Fund.
The projects rewarded by the Prize for the Development of Co-Production since its creation are:
