MEDIA Information Sessions on New Calls at Berlinale 2020

As well as hosting a European Film Forum at Berlinale 2020 (see details and schedule here), Creative Europe MEDIA will host two free Information Sessions on new 2020 Calls.  


  • Saturday, 22nd Feb Martin Gropius Bau (EFM), Producers Hub, 2nd Floor. 5.30-7.30 pm.
  • Speakers: Soon-Mi Peten & Irina Sofletea. 

As of 2020, the Creative Europe MEDIA Programme will provide support to European Networks of Festivals. These networks should aim to further develop effective collaboration and partnerships across borders and to elaborate strategies for joint activities in order to benefit the audiences and cinema-lovers of today and of the future. This presentation will look at the priorities of this Call and at film festival collaboration models. The talks will be followed by a networking drink.

In 2020, MEDIA has two Film Festival Calls (for activities between 1/11/2020 and 30/04/2021) - the same Suport to Film Festival Call as in previous years plus the new Action for Support to European Networks of Festivals. The deadline for both calls is 23rd April 2020.
