International co-productions: case studies

International co-productions: case studies

The session takes us behind the scenes of two international co-productions funded by the UK Global Screen Fund: September Says, the directorial debut of Ariane Labed premiering in Un Certain Regard (Ireland, UK, Germany), and Leonora in the Morning Light, a film by Thor Klein currently in production (Germany, Mexico, Romania, UK), revolving around the story of British Surrealist artist Leonora Carrington. The UK producers, alongside the international majority co-producers, share the films’ production histories, addressing the creative and financial challenges met by the partners and the opportunities offered by international collaborations.
