Early international co-production law and best practices
The Creative Europe MEDIA programme introduced a new co-development scheme last year. For the audiovisual sector, such international co-production at a very early stage is rather unfamiliar and new. During the session, we will talk about what early co-production means on the legal side, what agreements the producers could make at such a pious stage and what to avoid. The topic is covered by Guido Hettinger (Eric Pommer Institute, Brehm & v. Moers, Germany), an experienced expert in his field, who has several decades of international consulting experience as a lawyer in the audiovisual industry. He has been the legal advisor to producers for several well-known international television series, films and television programs.
On the practical side, hanna Hemila (Handle Productions), a Finnish producer/director who has been co-producing for nearly twenty years and won numerous awards, will have the floor, for whose latest project the LE MEDIA programme has allocated a co-development grant. Hanna leads the conversation with Guido, drawing on her own experience and trying to make sense of the different aspects of early co-production.
The lecture-chat will take place within the framework of Industy@Tallinn&BE on 23 November at 12-13:30 (EET) in Nordic Hotel Forum, 2nd floor room Arcturu.
The opportunity to listen to the lecture online is industry.poff.ee website.
The event is organized by Creative Europe MEDIA Baltic and Nordic Information Boards in cooperation with the Erich Pommer Institute.
