The Junior Entertainment Talent Slate has revealed that four Irish projects have been selected for the fifth edition of the co-production initiative, which traditionally takes place at the Berlin International Film Festival.

JETS Initiative 2021 organised  by WEP Productions and JETS Filmverleih & Vertrieb- Distribution on the 16th and 17th of February 2021

The JETS initiative brings together talented up-and-coming producers/directors for their debut, second and third feature films with international producers, sales agents, financing, and distribution companies. Besides Germany, the partner countries are currently Canada, Ireland, South Africa, Norway, Great Britain, and the USA, and the aim is to support young talents in an ever-growing international film market.

The four Irish projects selected were:

  • Caolan Flood, Brian Hose & Sabrina Rücker; THE FORTHY FOOT, Ireland
