TALLINN: Twenty projects have been selected for the Co-Production Market taking place on 29 November – 1 December 2017, at Industry@Tallinn & Baltic Event during Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival.
The 16 projects in the main selection are accompanied by two projects from Focus Region Flanders, Belgium, and two projects in the pilot First Stop Estonia section. For its 16th edition, the Baltic Event was opened to projects from outside the region of Eastern and Central Europe, Scandinavia, Georgia, Russia and the Ukraine, with projects from elsewhere welcome to apply if they had plans to coproduce with the afore-mentioned territories. The First Stop Estonia section was added to give Estonian projects visibility in the early stages of development. The Baltic Event received a record number of submissions.
A Eurimages Co-Production Development Award worth 20,000 EUR will be handed out by a jury consisting of Katriel Schory, Executive Director, Israel Film Fund, Israel; Kristina Trapp, Chief Executive, EAVE, Luxembourg; and Elena Kotova, National Representative, Eurimages, Czech Republic.
