Accreditation
In cooperation with MMC Studios Cologne

Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg share a common living and economic area with North Rhine-Westphalia in the heart of Europe. In previous years the FILM FESTIVAL COLOGNE has already established close relationships to the Benelux countries. This year, too, we will celebrate the friendly relations to our neighbors with a special program section for our audience and the industry. We present current successful collaborations and once again put the focus on fostering future connections. Furthermore, the work stipends of the ministry for culture and science in North Rhine-Westphalia will be given out at this event.
