Berlinale, Where You Can See The Lodgers and the Big IFTA Win

Posted By tailoredfilms / Tailored Films' Blog / No Comments

It’s been a seriously busy few weeks here in Tailored HQ. With Berlinale, JETS, organising distribution for The Lodgers and last – but by no means least – celebrating our IFTA win, we’ve barely had enough time to catch our breath!

 

The bright lights and buzz of Berlinale had us heading to the German capital for a few days this week. As one of our favourite events of the year, we were delighted to be back in Berlin to meet some like minded filmmakers – and to imbibe in a stein or two!

Though we were also at Berlinale to catch up with distributors, co-producers and of course, filmmaker friends, one of the main reasons we were in Berlin was to pitch our upcoming project Hive Mind at JETS 2018. The JETS Co-Production Initiative is funded and supported by FilmFernsehFonds Bayern, Irish Film Board, HessenFilm und Medien GmbH, nordmedia, The Finnish Film Foundation and Telefilm Canada and brings together filmmakers from Ireland, Germany, Canada, Finland and the UK to pitch their upcoming projects to potential distributors and co-producers. We were delighted to see such a strong Irish contingent there this year and are looking forward to following up on some of the interesting projects that were pitched.

One thing that we are absolutely over the moon about this week was The Lodgers’ big win at the IFTAs. The film won in the VFX category beating out industry behemoths like Game of Thrones. A huge congrats are due to Ben O’Connor, Aoife Noonan, Julianne Forde and Oisin O’Neill for their much deserved award. Special shout-out to Alan Foley and Ray Sullivan for their great contribution to VFX too.
