South Tyrol as ideal platform for co-productions between north and south.
“Four Countries. Two Languages. One Summit.” This was the slogan of the INCONTRI international co-production meetings in South Tyrol, which Business Location Südtirol – Alto Adige (BLS) presented for the third time this year during the Bolzano Film Festival in mid-April. The event aims to promote cooperation between the German-and Italian-language film industries in a proactive way, to encourage transnational working relationships and to position South Tyrol in the long term as a region for film.
The biggest change in 2013 was that Switzerland joined the three countries that have participated in past years: Italy, Germany and Austria.
Well-known TV and film producers, representatives of major radio stations, and film-funding organizations from all four countries were in attendance.
