Books at Berlinale - Turn your book into a film - deadline 19 November 2015

Books at Berlinale: Call for Book Submissions – Deadline 19 November 2015

Looking to get your book made into a film? Then this might be for you.

10 books will be selected during the ‘Books at Berlinale’ networking event in February.  These pre-selected novels will be pitched to an audience of around 120 internationally established producers.  The presentation is followed by a networking event where contacts with producers can be established.

The 10 selected books will also be published in the ‘Books at Berlinale’ catalogue which will be handed out to attending producers.

You should be the film rights holder of the novel. Your book proposal should be a best-selling or brand new yet to be published novel with great potential for screen adaptation.  An English translation should exist to be handed out to interested producers.

Most producers work in the independent arthouse sector.  Your book should be suitable for this sector.
