Back from European Genre Forum in Zagreb: Made lots of new friends and contacts
Rejoice! We have been selected for the “Frontières” genre co-production market during Fantasia International Film Festival in Montréal – which is one of the biggest genre film festivals in the world:
> FRONTIÈRES INTERNATIONAL CO-PRODUCTION MARKET
And we also have been invited to the European Genre Forum at Fantastic Zagreb – many thanks to the organizers and also to the Goethe-Institut Kroatien!
“The main goal of this international project is to connect young and upcoming as well as already proven European film talents, producers, directors, screenwriters and others I.E. development, promotion and financial support of film, television and web projects with a strong European and regional focus as well as international co-productions beyond European framework through cooperation with European film funds, national film centres, production studios etc.”
It’s official now – MFG, the film funding board of Baden-Württemberg, has granted us 28.000 EUR! This is probably the first time that a crowdfunded feature film project is recognized by a governmental film funding institution in Germany and probably also the first time ever that a Lovecraft adaptation is receiving public funding. For us it is the first time, too, and we are looking forward now towards this upcoming cooperation.
Big thanks to you all, without you we never would have come so far! It’s hard to say no, if there is such a clear demand for a film like “The Dreamlands”.

Let’s see what it does to those film sales and distribution guys…
Did you all survive the solar eclipse? No one missing or one too many in your household? Good. But if you want to see what the Moon really brings, you have to get our dream diary! We’re so proud to bring out a new vessel of Lovecraft’s and perhaps soon your own dreams …
TV report about the third Genrenale in Berlin, film festival of German genre cinema.
