Industry Insights – The EFM Podcast is presented by the European Film Market of the Berlinale. Hosted by curator-producer Nadia Denton and industry analyst Johanna Koljonen, it delves deep into the rapidly evolving film industry.
In this episode, we dive deep into the current international production and co-production landscape, in conversation with Ewa Puszczyńska, one of Europe’s most successful international producers. Some of her recent productions include KILL IT AND LEAVE THIS TOWN by Mariusz Wilczyński, which screened in Encounters at last year’s Berlinale, as well as Tomasz Wasilewski’s upcoming FOOLS. She will tell us about current challenges, her personal approach to each film, about what drives her both as a producer and a human being, how she works together with an all-women team and what advice she has for young producers entering the international scene today.
Johanna Koljonen is a media analyst, broadcaster, and experience designer based in Sweden. She is co-founder of boutique consulting firm Participation Design Agency, and the author of the Göteborg Film Festival’s annual Nostradamus Report.
