Call for entries for WEMW Co-Production Forum – EXTENDED DEADLINE

EXTENDED DEADLINE: November 7, 2021
The next edition of WEMW will mark the start of a brand-new era in the design and planning of the co-production market. After ten years based on a traditional physical format and one year run fully online, the new generation of WEMW will introduce a new concept based on hybrid content & format, with a full horizontal integration between physical and virtual participants. WEMW will take place on January 24-28, 2022 and it will include a first module of three days running both on-site in Trieste and online, and a second module available only on the WEMW digital platform. The heart of the event will still be the WEMW Co-Production Forum dedicated to documentaries and feature films in development from all over Europe and beyond. The upcoming edition of WEMW will bring together over 600 film professionals from more than 50 countries, in particular from the 2022 East & West countries in focus: Russia & UK, Ireland, Canada and USA.

SELECTION & CURATION
Selected projects will be announced late December and selected producers/directors will have the chance to pitch their project in Trieste in front of all attending decision makers and, at the same time, to all online registered professionals. We will arrange both on-site and online individual meetings with all registered participants and once again we will organize tailor-made curated meetings with a number of business angels from all over Europe and beyond, handpicked for each project in cooperation with EAVE and Eurodoc. Selected teams will have the unique opportunity to receive advice on co-production, finance, marketing or distribution, according to the primary needs of their project.

Alongside the Co-Production Forum, WEMW 2022 will offer a rich and lively program including works in progress, workshops and panels, as well as a series of brand new initiatives such as the WEMW Slate Market and the Inspirational Labs.
