EMERGING PRODUCERS CO-PRODUCTION NETWORK
Emerging Producers Co-Production Network (the Network) is an association of young producer talent from Northern Europe. The network’s main goal is to create more transnational collaborations and to make it easier for young people to find production assistance or financial support in other countries. The intention is to facilitate knowledge, relationships, finance, and to make creative exchanges and collaborations between Northern European film talents.
The Network was founded by eight producers who participated in the Talent Camp at Aarhus Film Workshop in November 2014. The members come from Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Faroe Islands, Ireland and Germany. The goal is to continuously include more producers from other countries and regions. In a larger network each producer can act as an ambassador for her or his own region.
The network members meet three times a year at different Talent Camps. The agenda of these meetings is to discuss the structure and activities in the network. The members will also participate in various master classes and industry relevant workshops as well as internal and public pitching events.
The Talent Camps are each time held in a new Northern European country, running concurrent with a local film festival. Through this initiative The Network can acquire new members and acquaintances, as well as get an insight into the film environment in other countries and regions.
Having the Talent Camps run simultaneously with a festival increases the talent’s chances to get their films screened and for the promotion of The Network, The Network will hold panel discussions or artist talks with its members.
The intention is that The Network will mark its presence at major film festivals such as the Nordic Panorama, Dublin Film Festival, CPH: DOX, Berlinale and Gothenburg Film Festival.
