It will support co-development and co-production efforts for digital content involving Canadian and German producers from Berlin-Brandenburg. Applications can be submitted effective immediately and until 1 September.
Helge Jürgens, Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg managing director: “The cooperation with Canada, one of the most successful media locations on the globe, provides Berlin-Brandenburg's producers with numerous benefits: exchange with an important international market, new options for co-production and funding, a transatlantic network as well as new impulses and synergies in terms of content and production processes.”
