Switzerland Meets Scandinavia

Switzerland Meets… is an opportunity for Swiss producers and representatives of public financing and television to meet a delegation from a country having a co-production treaty with Switzerland, to encourage co-production, networking and collaborations. In 2022, a delegation from Sweden, Norway and Denmark will be present in Nyon: Switzerland Meets Scandinavia.

Switzerland Meets Scandinavia is an opportunity for Swiss producers and representatives of public financing to meet a delegation from Denmark, Norway and Sweden to foster co-production, networking and collaborations. In partnership with BAK, Danish Film Institute, Norwegian Film Institute and Swedish Film Institute.

The idea behind this meeting is to facilitate contacts between experienced producers who are looking for co-production opportunities in the context of an immediate co-production agreement with Switzerland. It aims not only to offer support to producers and to their long-term activities, but also to encourage them to defend their editorial line of creative documentary cinema. It is in the context of these meetings and within an intimate atmosphere, relaxed and effective, that the producers have the opportunity to create long-lasting professional relationships.
