MAKING WAVES is a brand new one week distribution and marketing workshop devised by the London Film School in partnership with La fémis, the dffb, ESCAC Barcelona, the Romanian Film and Theatre University and New York’s Columbia University of the Arts Film Department and funded through the EU Media Programme.

The workshop was held in parallel to the Berlinale. 30 participants from the 6 training institutions were immersed in all areas of the festival: the European Film Market, the festival’s official and sidebar sections and the Talent Campus, working collaboratively in teams to develop creative campaigns, edit trailers, design posters and plan roll-out packages for actual independent films showing in the European Film Market. They were joined by working industry professionals from across the independent distribution sector who offered project support andin-depth case studies.


Team work.
