Bridging a gap sounds familiar? Submit your current film project to European Work in Progress Cologne – a valuable opportunity to find partners in the final phase of film production.

The European Work in Progress Cologne is an independent industry event, organised by AG Verleih and supported by the Film- und Medienstiftung NRW, which will take place for the first time during the Film Festival Cologne 2018.

The preparations for the first edition of European Work in Progress Cologne (October 9-11, 2018) embedded in the 28. Film Festival Cologne are in full swing. Film projects from all over Europe have been submitted and entries are still possible until August 15, 2018.

  • European Work in Progress Cologne aims to enable the final or additional financing of European high-profile productions and co-productions that are intended to connect with a wider International audience as well as to provide you with a valuable network. Our focus is on creative European fictional features with a strong quality appeal in the phase of (post-)production that are seeking partners, financiers, distribution and/or world sales.
  • Around 25 productions and co-productions will be selected and presented to a circle of International industry professionals with plenty of time for one-to-one meetings during the event.By the time of the pitch, an excerpt that adequately represents your film will be required. Each presentation is scheduled for a max. of 15 minutes. Once your project is invited, they will participate in the costs for your traveling and, of course, take care of your accommodation.


Film projects from all over Europe.


A jury will award three projects with vouchers for post-production services worth EUR 20,000,- and EUR 15,000,- endowed by the MMC Studios as well as a voucher for sound-post-production services in the amount of EUR 10,000,- endowed by K13.

European Work in Progress Cologne will be accompanied by various panel discussions in cooperation with Creative Europe Desk NRW and EAVE.
