Paul Thiltges Masterclass in Tbilisi – Day 1
Co-organized by WIFT Caucasus and Creative Europe Desk Georgia and supported by the USAID Economic Security Program, Paul Thiltges 50/50 Masterclass in Co-production, Sales & Distribution will take place in Tbilisi Fabrika Hotel on 24-25 September 2019.
Bringing together up to 20 participants, the master class aims to share experiences, methods on building successful co-productions and sales and distribution techniques to access European Markets.
Day 1: Building Successful Co-productions
The 2 day masterclass will be held by Paul Thiltges, the president of PTD. The company’s film catalog reflects the diversity of its professional network by including engaging documentaries and fiction such as the work of Michael Glawogger, Hicham Lasri or Ari Folman, while simultaneously working on rather entertaining fiction as with Frederic Jardin or Sylvie Testud. In the meantime PTD also commits to animated fiction aimed to children, co-producing stories such as Kirikou & the Sorceress by Michel Ocelot or The Blue Arrow and A Greyhound of a Girl by Enzo D’Alò.
The workshop is open to everyone from the Caucasus region. Following the 50/50 Initiative of WIFT International, we will be aiming at gender-balanced participation.
Applicants will be selected jointly by WIFT Caucasus and Creative Europe Desk Georgia.
Potential applicants should submit a short motivation letter presenting their background and interest in the field together with a description of a particular project that they would like to pursue during the masterclass.
Participation is free of charge.
