Participants include Opus Film, Storm Studios, Maipo and Trust Nordisk
Ten projects have been selected to participate in the Polish-Norwegian Co-production Forum at the 11th New Horizons International Film Festival.
Taking place July 26-28 during the festival, the Forum enables attendees to find co-producers, distributors and sales agents for a project. Five films from each country in different stages of production were selected as specially promoted projects pitched during the event.
Eighty participants from both countries have been confirmed, including producers such as Opus Film, Storm Studios, Maipo, Prasa i Film, sales agents such as Trust Nordisk, distributors such as Gutek Film, Best Film, Vivarto and buyers from Polsat, TVP and Canal+ Poland.
The event will include both group pitching and one-to-one sessions. Case studies of two recent successful Polish-Norwegian co-productions – Essential Killing andKing Of Devil’s Island – will also be held.
