Since 2003, film professionals from Germany and France have been gathering for an annual two-day German-French Film Meeting (Das Rendez-vous) to discuss new developments in the industry. The meeting first took place in Lyon and since then has been alternating each year between locations in Germany and France.
In addition to panel discussions on topics concerning production and distribution, the annual event offers the opportunity for film professionals from both countries to exchange their experiences and ideas with one another. A particularly interesting aspect of the meeting are the pitching sessions, giving producers the possibility to pitch their projects and find new partners for international co-productions between France and Germany.
Together with Unifrance, German Films organizes the annual meeting, which took place last year in Marseille.
This year's meeting will take place from 22-23 November 2016 in Saarbrücken.
