The second edition of the Berlinale Residency 2013 is calling for fictional and documentary films and cross-media projects from around the world. The programme will be held from August 15 – November 15, 2013 in Berlin.
The last date for submission is March 10, 2013. See here for application procedure.
Any filmmaker whose earlier film has toured any of the major international film festivals or at any of Berlinale’s extended programmes (Berlinale Co-Production Market, Berlinale Talent Campus’ Script Station, Doc Station or Talent Project Market) and now has a full-length screenplay with a producer already in place is eligible to apply.
The programme selects four projects and invites script consultants from the Nipkow Programm to work on developing the screenplays with the participants. The producers of the projects are also called for a workshop (Nov 8-11, 2013). Here they are given feedback by the mentors and are supported in preparing the projects for the international market. Post the completion of the programme, participants and their producers can present their projects at the Berlinale Co-Production Market in February 2014 or at the Ibero-American Co-Production Meeting in Guadalajara in March 2014.
During the three month stay, participants will receive monthly grants of 1.500 Euro each to sustain them in the German capital.
Berlin Residency is an initiative of the Berlin International Film Festival and is funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.
