MANNHEIM MEETING PLACE: the forum for start-up international co-producers.
THE 9th MMP TAKES PLACE DURING THE 67TH
IFF MANNHEIM HEIDELBERG on 18th-21st 2018
But in fact the work on Co-production projects starts much earlier – 80% of project discussion takes place in the 3 or 4 months before each Mannheim IFF.
Starting each June, if you are a first or second-time feature producer then from the comfort of your office chair you are invited to develop a written co-production project presentation with us. It will then reach experienced minority co-producers working with MMP in over 30 countries.
The relevant among these working professionals will signal their interest in your project and go on to script reading and further questions – if they then want to continue working with you then both sides will be invited to Mannheim in November.
If we don’t locate interest you will at least be told why – MMP provides you with confidential and individual feed-back structure unparalleled worldwide, that can develop your self-confidence and attitude as a start-up producer.
“To be honest, some of the questions did get me in the beginning, but I quickly realized the benefits of it usually. Working with you has been tremendously helpful for me, I have learned a lot in the process. I really appreciate all the time that MMP invested in this project.” – from a 2017 participant,who had worked in 2 international co-productions before , now starting her first majority producer role.
