Rome has become a reference point where filmmakers and producers – selected among the world’s most interesting talents on the independent film scene – find an ideal platform for presenting their new feature film projects and connect with key players in the international film industry.

More than 50% of the projects selected over the past editions have completed funding and have become award-winning, internationally recognized films. Among them, to quote only a few titles: LITTLE CRUSADER by Vaclav Kadrnka (Karlovy Vary 2017, awarded); OUT by Gyorgy Kristof and MOBILE HOMES by Vladimir de Fontenay (both at Cannes 2017 respectively in Un Certain Regard and Quinzaine des Réalisateurs); THE PARTY by Sally Potter (Berlinale 2017).

Alumni of Rome’s co-pro market include Agnieszka Holland, Paddy Considine, Ritesh Batra, Clio Barnard, Jia Zhang-ke, Sheng Zhimin, Diego Lerman, Kadri Kousaar, Stephen Burke, Katarzyna Roslaniec, Sharunas Bartas, Alvaro Brechner, and of course some of the most interesting Italian names (Laura Bispuri, Fabio Mollo, Marco Bellocchio, Franco Maresco, Manetti Bros, Elisa Fuksas, Fulvio Risuleo, Valerio Mieli, Salvatore Mereu, Matteo Botrugno and Daniele Coluccini among others).

The MIA|Cinema Coproduction Market is honored to present once again in 2018 the Eurimages Co-Production Development Award: an International Jury will assign the Award, a cash prize of 20.000 Euros for the development of the best feature film project showcased that fulfills the criteria for collaboration and co-production that inspire Eurimages.

This year we are also proud to present the ARTE International Prize, a development award of 6.000 Euros.
