Selected film projects will be presented at the 2014 event, which takes place during the Netherlands Film Festival from Sept 25-28.

21 projects from 15 different European countries will participate in this year’s Holland Film Market (HFM) Co-Production Platform.

Run during the Netherlands Film Festival from Sept 25-28 in Utrecht, the selected film projects will be presented to co-producers, distributors, sales agents and financies to encourage co-productions between European countries.

This year will also see the second edition of the HFM Work-in-Progress Session on Sept 26, where five projects previously pitched at the HFM will present rushes and rough cuts of their film to international sales agents, festival representatives, distributors and funding partners.

The prize-winning projects of both the co-production platform and the Work-in-Progress Session will be announced during the HFM closing ceremony on Sept 27.
