Trans Atlantic Partners Networking In New York

by Sandy Mandelberger, North American Editor

One of the more ambitious initiatives at this week’s Independent Film Week, the international gathering of independent producers, in New York is Trans Atlantic Partners, an intensive training and networking program for established film producers from Europe, Canada and the United States. 26 producers are participating in the program designed to give filmmakers the necessary tools and knowledge to maneuver through the complex arena of international co-productions. The initiative is sponsored by the IFP, the U.S. producers organization that is presenting all the programs in the Independent Film Week, the Erich Pommer Institut (Europe) and Strategic Partners (Canada), a major co-production market held in Halifax during the Atlantic Film Festival.

European producers and their projects participating in the forum include:

Anneli Ahven (Estonia, MY ESTONIA)
Helen Alexander (UK, HECTOR & HIMSELF)
Tom Collins (Ireland, READING IN THE DARK)
Dariusz Jablonski (Poland, DRY RUN)
Titus Kreyenberg (Germany, THERE ARE NO SOULMATES)
Gilbert Mohler (Germany, THE QUEST FOR THE DRAGON'S GOLD)
Magnus Paulsson (Sweden, WANG)
Olivier Rausin (Belgium, MOTEL)
Sebastian Schelenz (Germany, MOTEL)
Femke Wolting (The Netherlands, EINSTEIN IN GUANAJUATO)
