The Producers Guild Of America (PGA) has announced the five winning film projects of the inaugural International Co-Production Showcase (CoProShow) competition.
The competition takes place in conjunction with the second annual Produced By Conference that runs from June 4-6 at Twentieth Century Fox Studios in Los Angeles.
The winners are: Edwina Forkin and Richard Scobie’s 66 Degrees North (Iceland); Tim Baker and Jing Jin’s The Adventure Of Kokochin (China); Matt Hearn’s The Fourth Knot (Victoria, Australia); Andrew Boutilier and Eric Finkel’s Somebody Else (Canada); and Nicholas Cole’s Under The Black Flag (New South Wales, Australia).
“We reached out to film commissions all over the world and received entries from Cape Town to Nova Scotia, Mexico to the Czech Republic and Japan,” Stu Levy, chair of the PGA’s international committee, said. “The winning producers will now have an opportunity to network with American producers in order to co-develop their projects and find the funding necessary.”
