Producer’s Guild of America Launches International Film Co-Production Showcase

BY STAFF

The Producers Guild of America (PGA) announced today the inaugural International Film Co-Production Showcase (CoProShow) competition, which is taking place in connection with the second annual Produced By Conference (PBC) being held June 4-6, 2010 at Twentieth Century Fox Studios. Reaching across film, television and new media industries, PBC is a rare educational forum involving acclaimed producers, including countless Academy Award®-winning filmmakers and Emmy® winners, as well as the next generation of creative entrepreneurs.

The goal of CoProShow, which was developed by the PGA’s International Committee, is to provide international film producers with a unique opportunity to engage in an open dialogue with their U.S. counterparts. CoProShow is a feature film project market that will provide an opportunity for five talented, international producers to bring their film projects to PBC and have one-on-one, co-production meetings with American producers. CoProShow, which is open to international film producers (non-US residents), represents the first co-production showcase competition to be held in Los Angeles. This showcase aims to help international producers initiate business relationships, co-develop compelling projects and spearhead investment.

“The CoProShow is the first international feature film project market to take place in Hollywood, and we couldn’t ask for a more exciting venue to launch. A producer’s job inevitably must consider an increasingly inter-connected world, and the PGA is dedicated to being a gateway for international producers to the U.S. market,” said Stu Levy, Chair of the PGA’s International Committee.

Interested international film producers should submit a screenplay synopsis for a feature-length project currently under development, which will then be reviewed by a panel of acclaimed U.S. producers. Five finalists will be selected and invited to travel to Los Angeles to attend the 2010 PBC weekend event and meet with the panel, as well as participate in the weekend events. The deadline to receive CoProShow submissions is April 30, 2010. For more information regarding guidelines and the application process, please visit www.producedbyconference.com.

The 2010 Produced By Conference will feature over 30 conference sessions designed to provide all producers with valuable career tools and insights necessary in today’s competitive marketplace. The annual event features an extraordinary program of esteemed speakers, seminars, networking opportunities, social events and exhibitors. Various keynotes, panel discussions, and special mentoring roundtables are slated to take place throughout the weekend. Among the many topics to be discussed are financing, distribution, development, brand integration, green productions, scripted and reality television, live entertainment, 3D and transmedia storytelling, new media and videogame development, and much more. Last year’s sold out conference connected more than 1,200 producing professionals. Interested participants can register online at http://www.producedbyconference.com

PBC is an annual event sponsored, produced and managed by the PGA. All profits from PBC are reinvested into industry member services, including education, industry promotion, production standards development, market research and legislative advocacy. The annual event features an extraordinary program of renowned speakers, seminars, networking opportunities, social events and exhibitors.
