From the end of September 2022, filmmakers from Canada, Ireland, UK, Austria, Germany, South Africa and Norway 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.
Deadline for submissions is 18 November 2022. For further information, please send us an email to email@example.com with details of the project to receive our JETS Call for 2023 by email or check the websites of our main funders from the 26 September 2022 onwards.
The JETS Film Initiative, organised by WEP Productions and JETS Filmverleih & Vertrieb, is once again funded by its main funders ÖFI-Austrian Filminstitut, Telefilm Canada, nfvf- South Africa, HessenFilm & Medien, nordmedia, Screen Ireland and Filminvest Norway.
Note: Our endeavours will be a physical event during the Berlin International Film Festival 2023, however as COVID-19 still is among us we also have to consider an alternative Online version of the JETS Initiative for 2023 if really necessary. A final decision is made after participating teams have been selected from each country and each main funder has been consulted.
