Connecting Cottbus is an East-West co-production market which paves the way for ideas to be realized. Producers could submit new feature film projects together with their screenwriter or director. An expert jury selects the projects which are presented to the professional audience of experienced producers, buyers and financiers - often for the first time outside of the home country. The audience reaction soon makes it clear whether the project will have a chance of finding its audience in the various countries. Topical insights into the production landscape of East and Central European countries are offered in discussions and case studies. Over time, not only co-productions but also a lively network have been created between Eastern and Western Europe.
