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.
