Lab: Koproducer med Kina

Bridging The Dragon skal hjælpe europæiske producere ind på det kinesiske marked, som det kan være svært at navigere på. De indbyder nu seks europæiske og seks kinesiske filmprojekter, som er egnede til koproduktion mellem Kina og Europa, til et seminar. Ansøgningsfrist den 20. februar.


Seminaret afholdes af to gange:

April 2016, before the Beijing International Film Festival
Description: 3 to 4 days of project work, followed by market immersion

September 2016, before the Venice Film Festival
Description: 3 to 4 days of project work, followed by market immersion
After the successful edition at the Festival del film Locarno in 2015, we now move to Venice for the second module of the Lab for a new perspective of European cinema giving the opportunity to the Chinese industry to discover every year a new festival.

The lab

Six European and six Chinese film projects suitable for co-production or with a clear link for collaboration between China and Europe will be selected for the Lab. One of the six Chinese projects will be chosen by the FIRST International Film Festival as a new Chinese talent discovery.

Script advisors and film professionals from Europe and China will coach participants on the development of their projects by:

  • Defining the target audience of the project;
  • Addressing the weak aspects of story structure and providing concrete tools to improve story telling for the targeted foreign country and audience;
  • Introducing differences in terms of culture, taste, film industry and market between Europe and Mainland China;
  • Identifying the unique selling points of the project and enhancing the pitching ability to a foreign professional audience;
  • Checking the co-production feasibility, funding opportunities and defining an international strategy;
  • Empowering a network of relationships among professionals eager to develop co-operations between China and Europe as well as matching with participants’ profiles.

Participant target & Project status

Participants should be creative teams of director & producer OR writer & producer from Europe and China working on the development of fiction feature film projects (including animation but not documentary). The team shall submit a treatment (maximum 15 pages) with full development of story structure, characters and locations.
