NEXT WAVE

NEXT WAVE will not take place in 2021/22. The resumption of the programme with a new structure is planned for autumn 2022 and the application process is expected to start in February 2022.

We want to thank all partners and lecturers and, of course, the participants. We would especially like to thank our sponsors Creative Europe – MEDIA and Medienboard Berlin Brandenburg for their support and the trust they have invested in NEXT WAVE.

NEXT WAVE is a 9-month professional training programme focused on the cinephilia of the future and the development of international film markets: How can film sales, distribution and traditional exhibition models next to streaming and festivals respond to the challenges of the film markets in the 21st century? NEXT WAVE is designed for professionals from the areas of sales, distribution, exhibition, festivals and marketing with a working experience of 3-5 years, who are willing to gain in-depth knowledge of the industry, build a professional network and develop their own strategies for future film markets.
