From the end of September, filmmakers who want to realise their debut, second or third feature film as a co-production can apply for the JETS Initiative. 20 – 24 potential film projects by qualifying filmmakers will be selected and the producer/director teams will be invited to a pitching session for a two-country co-production at the Berlin International Film Festival 2021.
The JETS Film Initiative, organised by WEP Productions and JETS Filmverleih & Vertrieb, is this time funded by Telefilm Canada, nordmedia, Screen Ireland, HessenFilm & Medien, NFVF South Africa, and Filminvest Norway.
Deadline for submissions is 10 December 2020. For further information, please contact the participating main funders or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with details of the project to receive our JETS Call for 2021 by email.
Note: As COVID-19 still is among us and interferes with our normal daily lives so we also have to consider an alternative Online version of the JETS Initiative for 2021. A final decision is made after participating teams have been selected from each country and each main funder has been consulted.
