Entry Call for Sino-Foreign Co-production Projects 2015 – Beijing International Film Festival (BJIFF)
The Sino-Foreign Film Co-production Forum will take place on 17 April 17 2015 at the Beijing Club at the Beijing Hotel. Following the forum, there will be a pitch-and-catch session of Sino-foreign co-production projects, a major part of the forum event, alongside the BJIFF Film Market. They are seeking quality Sino-foreign film co-production projects from filmmakers to join this.
They will select a set of qualified projects from the submissions and provide a pitch-and-catch slot for each selected project. Potential investors and producers will be invited for the session, and staff of China Film Co-production Corporation will be on site to receive queries related to Sino-foreign film co-production.
Deadline for entries is 2 March 2015, and selected projects will be announced on 13 March 2015. Entry information and form can be downloaded here.
If your project is accepted, you are welcome to apply for Producer International Travel Assistance. Funding is not guaranteed and any support will be contestable.
The next session of the Residence du Festival will take place from 1 October 2015 to 15 February 2016.
The selection is open to young filmmakers from all over the world who are working on their first or second feature film (fiction project only). A jury selects six candidates for each of the two four-and-a-half-month sessions per year.
The candidates are selected on the strength of the short films or the 1st feature that they have already directed as well as on their planned feature and the reasons why they wish to participate in the Residence’s programme.
