About 2018

Baltic Event, the largest international co-production market in North-Eastern Europe taking place in collaboration with Industry@Tallinn of Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival, takes place for the 17th time in 2018.

Around 50 projects are presented with the Co-Production Market accepting projects from the Creative Europe MEDIA eligible territories as well as projects interested in co-producing with the region, two Works in Progress presentations showcasing both Baltic and international projects, POWR Baltic Stories Exchange training Baltic and Nordic writers to develop and pitch, and Script Pool Tallinn looking for writer-producer teams with competitive screenplays worldwide.

Baltic Event 2018 will also provide lectures on market strategies, financing methods, new technologies, and digital distribution, and host a market corner for short films from the Baltics.

The 2018 Focus Country is Italy.

Baltic Event is comprehensive but personal, perfectly organised but flexible, promotes upcoming talent and provides easy access to the biggest players in the industry, and takes place in state-of-the-art facilities in the heart of mediaeval Tallinn.

  • BALTIC EVENT CO-PRODUCTION MARKET

    Co-Production Market, held at Baltic Event since 2005, is the meeting-place for feature films in development looking for co-producers, financiers and sales agents. Around 15 projects are selected each year and over 300 pre-arranged meetings held with decision-makers who have made Tallinn their yearly stopover to look for new projects for their slates. While the market’s primary territory consists of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Iceland, Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Romania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Northern Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Slovenia, Russia, Georgia and Ukraine, a focus country, Ireland in 2019, projects from elsewhere, given that they have a link to the afore-mentioned region and are looking to put together a natural co-production, are welcome. Training on topics such as marketing and distribution in the international environment, multi-platform opportunities, and alternative financing methods is offered for project representatives.

    Baltic Event Co-Production Market has presented a grand total of 191 projects since its launch and is proud to announce that 90 of these projects have been completed and dozens are still in various stages of development or production. Over the years, our projects have enjoyed notable success at international film festivals and the box office.

    The call for projects will be announced in June with the deadline for submissions on September 2.

The projects should not have been presented at previous international works in progress showcases; and should not have sales agents attached yet.
