William PeschekLatest News

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 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.
