The German film industry will showcase its services and funding opportunities to Bollywood in a special presentation to the Indian film industry in Mumbai.

The event will be organised by Berlin-Brandenburg Film Commission (BFFC) and inward investment agency Berlin Partner on November 2.

India 's burgeoning film industry has recently been building strong links with Hollywood. Now, German industry representatives also hope to attract Bollywood, which has a huge fan base in Germany.

The event will forge links with Indian producers and creative professionals and facilitate discussions on co-production opportunities and possibilities for development of potential joint projects.

The BFFC will provide connections to the appropriate regional contacts and will offer assistance to potential Indian partners on issues relating to applications, shooting permits, locations and equipment.

The BFFC is the central contact agency for production companies and filmmakers who are interested in shooting a film in Berlin.

BFFC's representative, Christiane Raab commented, 'Attractive financing and funding opportunities, internationally competitive service providers, a large pool of creative cinema professionals and a wide array of impressive settings make Germany's capital region an internationally attractive location for film production.'
