MIDPOINT Institute at connecting cottbus 2021

November 03, 2021

The East-West co-production market at the Cottbus FF runs November 3-5, 2021 in Cottbus, Germany.

We are thrilled to be a part of it again – on site is MIDPOINT Feature Launch & Shorts program coordinator Sona Morgenthalova, who is there from Wednesday, November 3 till Friday, November 5!

In case you have any question – for example regarding the currently open call for Feature Launch (both creative teams with feature film projects in development & aspiring script consultants), hesitate no more and contact her! She will be more than happy to discuss with you everything you need.

It is an honour to be granting again the MIDPOINT Consulting Award, providing three selected cocoPITCH projects with an in-depth script consultancy with a MIDPOINT expert. The winners will be announced on Thursday, November 4, so stay tuned!
