Meetings on the Bridge


Meetings on the Bridge (MoB), the industry section of the Istanbul Film Festival, primarily showcases film projects and films in post-production from Turkey at Film Development and Work in Progress workshops with the purpose of initiating negotiations for co-productions. In 2015, Meetings on the Bridge started a training program with international experts on script, production, distribution, marketing, and pitching to the writers, directors, and producers of the selected projects and films to be presented before the workshops. Considering the advantageous geographical position of Turkey, in order to initiate a new co-production trend amongst neighbors, a new section called ‘Neighbours’ was launched in 2015 within the MoB. Each year nearly 30.000 Euro cash award along with in kind awards is given at the workshops.
