Switzerland Meets…

Switzerland Meets… is a unique opportunity for Swiss producers and representatives of public funds and television to meet a delegation from another region/country, and to encourage co-production, networking and collaboration. In 2023, delegations from Belgium, Netherlands and Luxembourg are coming to Nyon: Switzerland Meets Benelux.

In partnership with the Federal Office of Culture (FOC), Flanders Image, Wallonie Bruxelles Images (with S), SEE NL, Film Fund Luxemburg.

The programme will unfold between the 23rd and the 24th. The first day will hold an introductory roundtable discussion to present challenges and opportunities for co-production between Switzerland and Benelux and discuss the country-specific aspects of coproduction and funding partnership (funds, broadcasters, tax incentives, etc.), and a presentation of the selected production companies (from both Benelux and Switzerland), their profiles and line-ups.

On the second day, business-focused individual meetings between the Benelux and Swiss professionals will take place, allowing participants to exchange on their own projects for potential co-productions.
