After last year’s success, the independent film production companies from the North Rhine-Westphalia area once again invite you to a joint meet and greet at this year’s Cologne Conference. It’s all about communicating the strong output of NRW’s independent movie scene to the outside world and thereby expanding and strengthening networks and collaborations. Because often times the whining and moaning about the state of German cinema drowns out the fact how active and successful the production company form this area really are, with important directors and famous stars regularly involved in local productions. There are many renowned international projects being initiated and financed here, and in both fiction and documentary young local filmmakers enjoy success and renown in the highest echelons of the industry, with regular invitations to Cannes, Venice, Berlin and Sundance for their latest works. To celebrate these achievements and and provide a space for exchange, NRW’s independent producers invite you this year to the Kunstverein Kölnberg.
