Berlin: an exciting, cosmopolitan cultural hub that never ceases to attract artists from around the world. A diverse cultural scene, a critical public and an audience of film-lovers characterise the city. In the middle of it all, the Berlinale: a great cultural event and one of the most important dates for the international film industry. Around 300,000 sold tickets, more than 19,000 professional visitors from 115 countries, including 4,000 journalists: art, glamour, parties and business are all inseparably linked at the Berlinale.

  • Hello All, as every year here it comes the Berlinale. I'm around at Marriott booth #107 or crawling the lobbies of Hyatt and Marriott dealing with co-productions, distribution and financing, mainly EU co-production projects and US shooting in Italy with tax incentives. Feel free to drop me a text at +393386203913 or email at c.collova@legalinternational.com

  • As usual, I will once again be in Berlin for the Berlinale. Seeking contact with producers, directors and casting directors for opportunities in future productions. Feel free to direct message or email me if you have something that you think I might be suited to and would like to schedule an appointment.
