Through targeted networking and punctual scouting initiatives, and following the producers’ requests and needs, every year the MIA Film Co-Production Market showcases a selection of about 20 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.

An important opportunity for filmmakers and producers alike, the 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 Producers, EPC – European Producers Club among others.
The Film 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 project that best corresponds to the partnership and co-production criteria that drive Eurimages.

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: MUSTANG by Laure De Clermont-Tonnerre (Sundance Film Film Festivals 2019); A TALE OF THREE SISTERS by Emin Alper (Berlinale 2019, in Competition); SCREWDRIVER by Bassam Jarbawi (Venice and Toronto 2018); FARMING by Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Toronto Film Festival 2018); LITTLE CRUSADER by Vaclav Kadrka (Karlovy Vary 2017, awarded); OUT by Gyorgy Kristof and MOBILE HOMES by Vladimir de Fontenay (both at Cannes 2017); 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).
