COTTBUS: Thirteen projects in development and six works in progress have been selected for the East-West coproduction market connecting cottbus, that takes place from 6 to 8 November 2019 during FilmFestival Cottbus (5-10 November 2019).
The cocoPITCH selection comprises a large range of filmic styles and genres, from political thriller and road film to dramas about war trauma or modern slavery, next to apocalyptic sci-fi and a romantic comedy set in the outer space.
The 2019 line-up of cocoWIP also has a variety in tone, including a slacker dramedy and a darkly comic revenge story, as well as psychological family dramas set against the backdrop of pressing socio-political realities.
In alignment with FilmFestival Cottbus’ section Spotlight: Montenegro, coco is pleased to present its first Montenegrin project. Producers, sales agents, commissioning editors and other industry representatives active in East-West European coproduction can apply to attend without a project by 7 October 2019.
