Co-Production Market & Pitching Forum

Submissions for the next edition of the MIA|Film Co-Production Market (October 14-18th, 2020) are now open!

The deadline for applications has been extended to August 3rd.

To check eligibility criteria, please see our Rules and Regulations 2020

The MIA|Film Co-Production Market will showcase a selection of about 15 projects with strong co-production or co-financing potential at different stages of development, bringing together in a three-day session high quality projects, key players, decision makers and financiers from all over the world.

The MIA|Film Coproduction Market is honored to present once again in 2020 the Eurimages Co-Production Development Award: an International Jury will assign the Award, a cash prize of 20.000 Euros for the development of the best feature film project showcased that fulfills the criteria for collaboration and co-production that inspire Eurimages.
This year we are also proud to present the ARTE Kino International Prize, a cash award of 6.000 Euros given to the best project to support its development. With this award, ARTE hopes to contribute to the development and production of independent filmmaking.

As of the 2020 edition, with the intent of shining a light on the emerging, freshest Italian content, a new spinoff called Wanna Taste IT? will be devoted to Italian feature film projects at an earlier stage of development, accepting submissions from projects at subject/treatment stage (no full script needed).
