From the beginning of October, filmmakers who want to realise their debut, second or third feature film as a co-production can apply for the JETS Initiative. As in last years 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 2022.
The JETS Film Initiative, organised by WEP Productions and JETS Filmverleih & Vertrieb, is this time funded by Telefilm Canada, ÖFI-Austrian Film Institute, NFVF South Africa, nordmedia, Screen Ireland, HessenFilm & Medien and Filminvest Norway.
Deadline for submissions is 10 December 2021. For further information, please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with details of the project to receive our JETS Call for 2021 by email.
Note: Our endeavours will be a physical event during the Berlin International Film Festival 2022, however as COVID-19 still is among us we also have to consider an alternative Online version of the JETS Initiative for 2022 if really necessary. A final decision is made after participating teams have been selected from each country and each main funder has been consulted.
