Baltic Event Co-Production Market opens its submissions and presents Eurimages Co-Production Development Award

In 2024, the Baltic Event Co-Production Market, the largest international co-production market in Northern Europe, is pleased to reintroduce the Eurimages Co-Production Development Award and launch a new section for children and youth film projects.

Baltic Event Co-Production Market, held since 2005, has always aimed to foster fruitful meetings. This year, the market welcomes back the Eurimages Co-production Development Award for the 2024-2026 period. “We are proud to present this award, as it not only increases the visibility of the winning project but also allows it to develop with greater financial freedom, embodying the spirit of a true European co-production,” says Marge Liiske, the head of Industry@Tallinn & Baltic Event.

The Eurimages Co-production Development Award includes a non-reimbursable subsidy of €20,000 for feature-length fiction, animation and documentary films, which must be used exclusively to cover the development expenses of the co-production project.

As before, the Baltic Event Co-Production Market welcomes feature film projects from a range of countries, particularly by the small and medium-sized film enterprises from low and medium production capacity countries, including Albania, Armenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, North Macedonia, Georgia, Hungary, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Montenegro, Norway, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, Ukraine, and this year’s Focus Country, Germany. Projects from other countries are also eligible if they are seeking co-production partners from the aforementioned countries.

New category – children and youth film projects

Keeping an eye on industry's needs and trends has always been an essential trait of Industry@Tallinn & Baltic Event. Therefore the co-production market’s 23rd edition adds children and youth film projects to the selection. The strategic expansion is designed to spotlight the children’s and youth cinema, offering an opportunity for projects that cater to these demographics. As the market overall welcomes feature film projects, the children and youth film category will focus on full-length fiction films, documentaries, and animations for younger audiences. Projects that intend to use AI in the process will gain special attention.

Since 2002, the Baltic Event Co-Production Market has showcased over 400 film projects, many of which have reached the silver screens across the globe and enjoyed successful festival runs. The presented projects have later been selected for Cannes, Berlinale, Venice, Karlovy Vary, Warsaw, Cairo, Tribeca, and more and earned Golden Globe and Oscar nominations.

In 2024, Baltic Event Co-Production Market will take place on 20–22 November, whereas all the industry events run 18–22 November.
The submissions for the 2024 edition are open until 15 July, 2024.
