Rotterdam's Cinemart call for projects!

Call for projects

31 January - 3 February 2016

Entry deadline  September 1, 2015

CineMart is the international co-production platform of International Film Festival Rotterdam. It offers a carefully curated selection of 25 feature film projects with market potential.
CineMart is an efficient platform for creating important connections between filmmakers and potential partners. At CineMart you can meet our selection of some 700 CineMart delegates and enjoy our informal networking events.

We are looking for strong and authentic film projects that already have a director attached and are quite well developed. By the time of CineMart a solid script and financing strategy should be in place and preferably a certain amount of financing.
The selected projects will be thoroughly prepared to work on their financing strategies, so that the one to one meetings can be meetings of high quality to talk about creative and financial partnerships.
The Eurimages Co-production Development Award of € 20.000
The Arte International Prize of € 7.000
The Wouter Barendrecht Award of € 5.000

Each year, about 20 CineMart titles premiere at major international festivals including Cannes, Venice, Locarno, Toronto, Berlin and, of course, Rotterdam.

Some recent results include:
Turist by Ruben Östlund, The Lobster by Yorgos Lanthimos, Mustang by Gamze Ergüven, Boi neon by Gabriel Mascaro and Schneider vs. Bax by Alex van Warmerdam.
