Polish-Norwegian Coproduction Forum at the 11. New Horizons IFF

The Polish-Norwegian Coproduction Forum took place on 26-28 July 2011 during the 11.New Horizons International Film Festival in Wrocław. It was a project ran by the New Horizons IFF and the Norwegian Film Institute within the "Norway Expanded" project co-financed by the Cultural Exchange Programme within the EEA Financial Mechanism and the Norwegian Financial Mechanism.

The Forum was a perfect opportunity to make contacts, find co-producers as well as a future distributor or a sales agent for a film.
5 films from each country in different stages of production were selected as specially promoted projects pitched during the event.
80 participants from both countries attended the event. They include producers such as Opus Film, Storm Studios, Maipo, Prasa i Film, sales agents, i.e. Trust Nordisk, distributors, i.e. Gutek Film, Best Film, Vivarto and buyers from Polsat, TVP and Canal+ Poland.
The event included pitching to a group and one-to-one meeting sessions. Case studies of Essential Killing (J.Skolimowski) and King of Devil's Island (M.Holst) - two recent successful Polish-Norwegian co-productions - also took place during the Forum.
