A Co-development platform for film projects from Switzerland, Germany, France, Italy
A4D is a co-development program for film projects from France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland, aimed at future-proofing their market potential and fostering long-term creative and business ties between the four targeted countries.
At its seventh edition, A4D has broadened its scope by launching a public call for projects that was met with more than seventy entries from the four countries, attesting to the film community renewed eagerness to get back on track and resume international cooperation and exchanges.
During the three-day event delegates of the nine selected projects (two from France, Germany, and Italy, plus three from Switzerland) are given the opportunity to receive feedback from international experts on their presentations, to partake in one-on-one meetings with potential partners, and attend panels and networking events.
The A4D is produced in partnership with the CNC (Centre national du cinéma et de l'image animée, France), the DGCA-MiC (Direzione Generale Cinema e Audiovisivo del Ministero della Cultura, Italy), the FFA (Filmförderungsanstalt, Germany), and the Federal Office of Culture (FOC)/Media Desk Suisse and in cooperation with Eurimages and EPC (European Producers Club).
Information on the call for projects for the next edition will be announced here in early 2022.
