Screen launches new European production and financing database

Screen International unveils online European production and financing database offering up-to-the-minute information to subscribers.

Screen International is proud to launch Screenbase, a new European production and financing database which is being made available exclusively to Screen subscribers starting this week.

The database covers European films in active development, pre-production, production and post-production with details of finance, creative elements, production companies, sales and status. The database is carefully curated to include only serious projects and initially covers the five key territories of UK, France, Germany, Spain and Italy.

Other countries will follow Updated and expanded on a daily basis,Screenbase aims to offer an essential new service for the European industry, giving financiers and distributors a wide view of upcoming production, offering festival programmers a snapshot of the next two years of movie output and allowing constant updates and renewal to allow continual tracking of projects.

Users can cross-reference between each of the parameters be it country or genre, producer, financial backer or sales agent.

“Screen is thrilled to be launching this new database further strengthening our service to subscribers,” said editor Mike Goodridge. “The team has worked hard to get Screenbase launched and we will be refining and improving on a daily basis to ensure that it becomes an essential business tool for anyone involved in making, selling or buying European film.

“We are keen to encourage an ongoing dialogue between producers and the Screenbase team so that each entry remains current and relevant. We look forward to expanding into all European territories and beyond, as the web of information builds. I encourage all subscribers to go onto the service and come back to us with feedback.”

  • How is screenbase different from IMDBpro where all the info on most European films is available for a yearly subscription rate of $90?

  • I find this new database extremely well done and useful. Interactive cross-referencing is time saving and service for any specific search. How did we, and the European film Industry, live without it!

  • Hi - just responding to the anonymous comment above about the difference between Screen Base and IMDBpro, the real point is that our information is more up to date and we are telling users about new films before other services. That is why we have focused on five key European markets to begin with - so we can deliver depth on them using our network of correspondents. We also aim to deliver more information about funding for films etc as the service develops. This is a work in development so we value all feedback about how it can be improved.
