Year-end meeting with representatives of the film industry and the authorities on the current situation

For a number of years now, the Berlin Brandenburg Film Commission has been inviting representatives from the film industry and the authorities to a year-end meeting in which the previous film year is evaluated in a relaxed atmosphere in order to set common working goals for the future in the interests of the film-friendly region. Both grievances and positive developments are discussed. The joint dialogue between representatives of authorities and the film industry, taking into account all issues, has long proven itself - not least thanks to the seminar series "Before the flap falls" - in order to work effectively on improvements.
