Berlin 2013: New Films from Soren Kragh-Jacobsen, Gyorgy Palfy in Co-Production Market
For its 10th anniversary, Berlin's co-production market expands to include 20 international features.
BERLIN – New features from Dogme 95 co-founder Soren Kragh-Jacobsen (Mifune), Argentine auteur Lucrecia Martel (The Headless Woman) and Hungarian experimental filmmaker Gyorgy Palfi (Taxidermia) are among the highlights of this year's Berlinale Co-Production Market, the co-production showcase which celebrates its 10th anniversary this year at the Berlin International Film Festival (Feb. 7-17).
The networking event, in which international arthouse films with at least 30 percent of their financing in place search for production partners, will feature 38 new projects budgeted at between $1.3-$17 million (€1 million - €13 million).
Among the more prominent projects are Kragh-Jacobsen's The Last Journey of Monsieur Pichon, headed up by Denmark's Nimbus Film; Palfi's The Voice from Hungary's KMH Film and Zama from director Martel. Produced by Argentine's Lita Stantic Producciones, Zama is one of three projects included in the Rotterdam-Berlinae Express that will participate both in the CineMart co-production event at the Rotterdam film festival and Berlin's co-production market. The other two are When You Were Born from Italian director Alice Rohrwacher (Corpo celeste) and Sollers Point, a production from The Hamilton Film Group directed by first-timer Matt Porterfield.
The 2013 Berlinale Co-Production Market runs Feb. 10-12 at the Berlin House of Representatives -- located directly across from the European Film Market in the Martin-Gropius Bau in Berlin.
