ARRI International Support Program
At the Toronto International Film Festival, the ARRI Group unveiled its new International Support Program – a global initiative to help launch the next generation of cinematic storytellers. ARRI announced this innovative platform at special events during the festival, where representatives from Munich, Berlin, Los Angeles, Toronto, New York and New Orleans met with up-and-coming filmmakers.
In particular, a producers’ breakfast hosted by ARRI provided the perfect opportunity to convey how ARRI innovation and the worldwide reach of ARRI Rental will allow the International Support Program to develop talented storytellers by bringing their visions to the screen.
Through the program, producers with distinctive projects that have an international edge can apply for multifaceted support from ARRI, ranging from co-production, development, state-of-the-art equipment, postproduction and international sales.
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. 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.
