Alliance for Development
Alliance for Development’s concrete aim is to encourage early stage co-development and long-term organic cooperation between Germany, Italy, France and Switzerland.
Delegations of selected projects (director and producer) participate in Locarno Pro to present and discuss their projects in the context of a targeted program, structured in individual meetings with potential partners, plenary sessions, round tables, discussions and networking activities. Alliance for Development is a platform for French, German and Italian language film professionals to test their market potential and form creative and financial alliances for the early stages of film project development.
As Switzerland is the natural partner of the countries above, hosts their annual meeting since 2016, with the support of the Federal Office of Culture (FOC, Switzerland) in the context of the MEDIA compensatory measures, of the MiBACT and of the FFA.
Alliance for Development 2018
For the 2018 edition, four projects were selected among the beneficiaries of existing bilateral development funds between the Ministero dei beni e delle attività culturali e del turismo MiBACT (Italy), the Filmförderungsanstalt (FFA, Germany) and the Centre national du cinéma et de l’image animée (CNC, France). Three Swiss projects that applied for development support through MEDIA compensatory measures, and that are looking for German, French or Italian co-producers, also participated in the initiative.
