Co-producing a film can easily span years and turn into a long-term commitment for the parties involved. Finding the right co-production partner is only the first step in the chain, and the true challenge lies in the small details that surface over time. The producers and co-producers of the Berlinale Talents alumni-studded, World Cinema Fund-supported, and Berlinale Panorama 2017-presented Brazil-Argentina-France film Pendular uncover the hidden secrets of their fruitful collaboration. Scrutinising the film, they discuss the practical and personal challenges appearing at all stages of production, such as early agreements on common goals and strategic orientation, smart role allocation and the follow-up collaboration during distribution.
A producer, 2012 Talents alumnus and co-founder of Detailfilm and Zentropa Hamburg, Henning Kamm now runs Real Film in Berlin. His films have won the German Film Award, the Crystal Globe at Karlovy Vary and the Golden Dove at DOK Leipzig and have screened at festivals including the Berlinale, Sundance and Venice. He produced SHARQIYA (Berlinale Panorama 2012), PRAIA DO FUTURO by Karim Ainouz (Berlinale Competition 2014) and THE LAMB by Kutlug Ataman (Panorama 2014).
