What former participants say
- I found the seminar very informative and beneficial, giving me a greater insight into European Co-Productions, the challenges and opportunities that currently exist as well as looking to the future and what is on the horizon for the industry.Catherine Keane, Cartoon Saloon, Ireland
- I was taught more in 3 days in this seminar than in 3 years in a film school.Tomas Hruby, Nutprodukce, Czech Republic
- The seminar was really interesting, it was good to learn and see how other production companies all over Europe (and the world) work and how co-productions are made. The case studies were good examples but also talking to the other participants gave a good idea and more insight in the world of international co-production.Hanneke Bosman, BosBros, The Netherlands
- The seminar was a truly enriching experience in every respect. The accumulated knowledge acquired improved my understanding. Altogether highly positive in both professional and human terms.Martina Ecker, ndF: neue deutsche Filmgesellschaft mbH, Germany
