Each year at the Berlinale, JETS (Junior Entertainment Talent Slate) invites young filmmakers to an international co-production pitch. The initiative brings together young talents with German, Canadian, Irish, Finnish, Norwegian, British and US producers, sales agents, financing and distribution companies for their debut, second and third feature films. On the JETS event day, the selected teams pitch their projects and select three of the other teams as potential co-production partners. The international jury nominates the six to ten most suitable film projects for production development and financing. JETS is organized by WEP Productions and WEP UK Productions. The initiative is supported by Nordmedia, HessenFilm, Telefilm Canada, Screen Ireland, FilmInvest and The Finnish Film Foundation.
