15 June 2016
share info
Applications deadline: Friday 1 July 2016

Between 23 and 24 November 2016, at the University of Copenhagen, the European Co-production Symposium will explore co-production as the expression of a complex political and economic apparatus, and aims to bring to light the intricacies of producing a film across national borders with different production cultures and policy environments. The major objective is to identify and discuss issues confronting the European co-production system following a decade marked by three major challenges: 1) the global financial crisis; 2) the emergence of the Digital Single Market and new digital release windows; and 3) the trend towards the globalization of co-productions. Keynote speakers include Roberto Olla (Executive Director of Eurimages) and Ib Bondebjerg (Professor Emeritus at the University of Copenhagen).

An associated aim of the Symposium is to establish a broader network of researchers working in the area of European co-production, with a view to pursuing future collaborative projects and publications. Scholars from the world of film studies, but also film history and economics, political science, as well as cultural studies and sociology are invited to participate. Scholarly papers will be complemented by industry roundtables, case studies and screenings, thus facilitating a dialogue between the academic and film industry spheres and creating a space in which the various facets of European coproduction are considered and debated.

Topics may include, but are not restricted to:

Historical and contemporary perspectives on European identity and transnational production practices

Co-productions in light of the financial crisis of 2007/2008

Co-productions in the context of the Digital Single Market

Financial joint ventures versus official co-production

Public support mechanisms and how these enable and/or inhibit co-production

The interface between financing and filmmaking

Education and training in the practice of international co-production

Case-studies on regional cinematic collaboration, as well as co-production from the perspective of individual European countries

Challenges specific to European co-production

Collaboration with non-European countries


Applicants should send their proposals in English to the organising committee by Friday 1 July 2016 (midnight CET). Proposals should include the title of the proposed paper, a 400-word abstract, 4 bibliographical references, and a brief biography. There is no registration fee for the Symposium.
