The aim of the workshop is to give young filmmakers from the region a first insight into international co-productions. A pitching training prepares them for organized speed-dating and one-on-one meetings with four young German producers. Benefiting from their experiences and consultance the filmmakers learn how to briefly present their project idea within a scheduled time and to generate interest. It is the first move to find a team partner in order to apply for the Robert Bosch Stiftung Co-Production Prize.
Robert Bosch Stiftung is implementing a joint project in collaboration with Georgian National Film Center. The project aims to enable young filmmakers to develop their projects and cooperate with young German co-producers.
