A European Film
celebrating Europe's cultural diversity
BABYLON is a feature film development initiative and cultural forum, produced by Scenario Films (UK) in co-production with CinÚ-Sud Promotion (France), Mira Media (Holland) and ScriptHouse (Germany). It is aimed at Europe's minority filmmakers and mixed creative teams seeking to broaden their international reach by working creatively together in a European context.
BABYLON 2009 builds on the last two years' successful Feature Film Development programme which will now include a new outreach phase of Regional Workshops as well as ongoing events throughout the year.
The European Programme consists of:
A 4-day project development workshop in Rotterdam 26-29 January 2009
As well as intensive advice and analysis from experienced industry consultants, the BABYLON workshops offer creative exchange, networking, co-production and distribution opportunities.
Online and telephone consultation with Babylon mentors is available during the rewrite phase, February to April 2009.
Projects are re-assessed and the most promising selected for the second phase:
A 5-day industry workshop in Cannes 14-19 May 2009
Ongoing membership of the Babylon network is free for all graduates.
