Industry veteran Bernie Stampfer: "You cannot climb a mountain without orientation."
Our upcoming international workshop European Co-Production - Legal and Financial Aspects will take place online this year. Even under normal circumstances, co-productions are highly complex endeavors. Today, film and TV professionals face a whole new set of challenges in light of the ongoing pandemic. Will shooting stops and closed cinemas affect funding regulations and distribution chains? We are thrilled to reveal a great line-up of renowned industry experts who will answer these questions and present insightful case studies.
"You cannot climb a mountain without orientation. Especially nowadays this workshop offers advice, insight and future perspectives. The 2020 edition of European Co-Production will address the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic head-on: The exponentially accelerating digital distribution of content, the fundamentally changing situation of cinema and the restructuring of distribution and international sales. These factors will affect business strategies of virtually all independent producers in Europe." We spoke to Bernie Stampfer about orientation in these unsettled times, the changing role of cinema and future perspectives within the world of co-production. Bernie has 30+ years of industry experience, is a member of the European and German Film Academies and is once again the Head of Studies of our upcoming international workshop European Co-Production - Legal and Financial Aspects that will take place online this year.

The chance to learn from first-hand experience of fellow industry professionals dealing with recent industry challenges as well as hand-picked benefits round up this offer.
