9) Good evening from Melbourne, Australia. Thanks Mr Curanta for your presentation. Pursuing international opportunities for international co-production is a key driver of my activities and projects. I am wondering -- do you or colleagues at Catalan Institute for Cultural Companies (ICEC) facilitate introductions to Catalan-based local producers? Or is it preferred that the international producer seek out and cultivate a working relationship before applying? Many thanks.
At Catalan Films and Catalunya Film Commission we promote coproduction meetings with specific territories at international markets so that producers can get to know potential partners. You can also contact potential partners through the Catalan producers’ associations: PROA https://www.proafed.com/what-is-proa/ and PAC http://www.pac.cat/
