2020 Eurimages Co-production Development Awards


At the reception organised in co-operation with the Berlinale Co-Production Market, the Eurimages Co-production Development Award, of an amount of 20 000 euros, was awarded to the project There Are Two Kinds of People in This World to be directed by Onur Saylak and produced by Liman Film and b.i.t Arts (TR). The jury composed of the producer Giorgos Karnavas (GR), the world sales representative Marie-Pierre Vallé (FR) and the Czech representative of Eurimages Elena Kotová decided to reward a project “that plays with different genres, is intended for an organic co-production and tackles contemporary political issues in a surprising and original way, with a convincing artistic team behind it”. This jury also chose to award a Special Mention to the project Electric Child to be directed by Simon Jaquemet and produced by the Swiss company 8Horses. The next Eurimages Co-production Development Award will be presented at the 2020 edition of Cartoon Movie, which will take place on 3-5 March 2020 in Bordeaux (FR). Further information available on the festival’s website.

During CineMart’s closing ceremony in Rotterdam, the very first Eurimages Co-production Development Award of 2020, of an amount of 20 000 euros, was awarded to the project Infanta by Natalia Garagiola, which will be produced by Benjamin Domenech for REI CINE (AR). The jury composed of producer Didar Domerhi, Rémi Bonhomme (Critics’ Week) and Dorien Van de Pas for Eurimages, chose to reward a project “with a strong directorial vision and an evident complicity between producer and director. This project with a starting point in real historical events is also a reflection on the power of collective delusion and the societal norms that make this possible.”

The next Eurimages Co-production Development Award will be awarded in the framework of the Berlinale Co-production Market, on 23 February 2020. Further information available on the Festival’s website.
