Through targeted networking and punctual scouting initiatives, and following the producers’ requests and needs, every year the MIA|Cinema Co-Production Market showcases a selection of about 20 projects under development, in particular the most wide-ranging ones and those most suitable for co-production, so that they can find the ideal partners for their artistic and economic finalization.

An important opportunity for filmmakers and producers alike, the MIA|Cinema Co-Production Market hosts a public pitching session open to all the Market’s attendees and three days of b2b meetings – carefully pre-scheduled by the staff – offering all the opportunities for an update of producers and directors about the various contexts of the international market. The vast network of prestigious relations and partnerships highlights the importance of the market on an international level: MIA can count on more than 30 partners which include European Institutions for the promotion of cinema, and international institutions such as the Sundance Feature Film Labs, Cinéfondation L’Atelier de Cannes, Rotterdam Cinemart, HAF Hong Kong, ACE – Atelier du Cinéma Européen, EPC – European Producers Club among others.

The MIA|Cinema Co-Production Market can also count, since 2010, on the support of Eurimages: acknowledging Rome’s market as one of the most effective European co-production markets, Eurimages presents in Rome the Eurimages Co-Production Development Award, a cash prize of 20.000 Euros for the development of the best project.

Established as a benchmark for the European and International players, over the past editions the Co-Production Market has successfully led more than 50% of the selected films to their completion. Among them, to quote only a few titles: LITTLE CRUSADER by Vaclav Kadrka (Karlovy Vary 2017, awarded); OUT by Gyorgy Kristof and MOBILE HOMES by Vladimir de Fontenay (both at Cannes 2017 respectively in Un certain Regard and Semaine de la Critique); THE PARTY by Sally Potter (Berlinale 2017); PEACE TO US IN OUR DREAMS by Sharunas Bartas (Cannes, Stockholm, Haifa); SWORN VIRGIN by Laura Bispuri (Berlin, Tribeca, BFI Flare); JAUJA by Lisandro Alonso (Cannes, San Sebastian, London, Karlovy Vary, Toronto, Busan); THE SELFISH GIANT by Clio Barnard (Cannes, Sarajevo, Karlovy Vary, Rio de Janeiro, BFI London); SOUTH IS NOTHING by Fabio Mollo (Toronto, Berlin, Raindance, San Francisco); ZERO MOTIVATION by Talya Lavie (Tribeca, Vancouver, London, Hong Kong).

Alumni of Rome’s co-pro market – formerly known as New Cinema Network – include also Agnieszka Holland, Paddy Considine, Ritesh Batra, Jia Zhang-ke, Sheng Zhimin, Diego Lerman, Kadri Kousaar, Stephen Burke, Katarzyna Roslaniec, Alvaro Brechner, and of course some of the most interesting Italian names (Marco Bellocchio, Franco Maresco, Manetti Bros, Elisa Fuksas, Fulvio Risuleo, Valerio Mieli, Salvatore Mereu, Matteo Botrugno and Daniele Coluccini among others).
