The Arri Group is launching an initiative called the International Support Program. It is designed to support filmmakers who are working on distinctive projects with an international edge. Through the program, Arri will offer multifaceted support ranging from co-production, development and access to state-of-the-art Arri equipment, to postproduction and international sales.
The company unveiled the program at the Toronto International Film Festival, September 8-18. Arri professionals from Munich, Berlin, Los Angeles, Toronto, New York and New Orleans are there to meet with filmmakers.
For nearly 100 years, Arri has committed itself to the film industry. “We like to find ways to give back to the industry and support new talent, so we have created the International Support Program to emphasize our ongoing commitment,” says Dr. Jörg Pohlman of the Arri AG executive board. For the first time, talented filmmakers will have an opportunity to realize their envisioned projects backed by Arri’s diverse expertise. The company’s support will be tailored to the individual needs of each selected project, helping filmmakers’ ideas come to life and make their way onto the big screen. Regional constraints no longer exist, as Arri has subsidiaries across the globe. Filmmakers from all over the world can apply online with their feature films or documentary film projects.”
