10th Lübeck Meetings

  • BRINGING THE PAST TO THE FUTURE - Audience Building for Historical Films in Unprecedented Times

    Friday, 6 November 2020, 2 pm (CET)

    At issue is how an historical subject can be made topical and relevant for today’s audiences. How can producers and distributors attract audiences to a film dealing with historical themes? And what is the best way to release a period film given the current pandemic restrictions? Against the background of the 100th anniversary of the reunification of Southern Jutland with Denmark, and 100 years of Danish-German friendship, players from both countries will join this industry panel, using examples from current and upcoming releases to talk about their experiences and their ideas for the future.

    Christina Rosendahl (Director) and Jonas Frederiksen (Producer, Nimbus Film) share their experiences with the Danish release of THE GOOD TRAITOR last summer.
    Dirk Decker (Producer & Distributor, Tamtam Film) and Henriette Ahrens (Marketing & Distribution, not sold) present their campaign for the German release of A WAR WITHIN by Kasper Torsting in October 2020.

    The event will take place ONLINE - please RSVP for the necessary information to attend virtually. Additional information and registration via email:

  • “Co-Kreatives Wirtschaften” – Die Wirtschaftsförderung Lübeck bei den NFL!

    Freitag, 6. November, 18 Uhr

    Von der kreativen Idee bis zum fertigen Produkt ist es ein langer Weg. Filmproduktionen haben das Meisterstück zu erbringen, Kreativität und künstlerische Freiheit mit gutem Wirtschaften in Einklang zu bringen, um ein Kulturprodukt am Ende des Prozesses fertig anzubieten. Die Produktion eines Filmes erfordert viel Managementkompetenz u.a. in Sachen Budgetplanung und Projektsteuerung. In diesem Sinne trifft der Unternehmer:innenkreis „Co-Kreatives Wirtschaften“ erfahrene Filmmacher:innen, um aus der Filmindustriepraxis zu lernen.

    Anmeldungen sowie Fragen zum Treffen oder zur Initiative „Co-Kreatives Wirtschaften“ bitte direkt an den zuständigen Projektleiter der Wirtschaftsförderung, Spyridon Aslanidis: aslanidis@luebeck.org
