The NIPKOW PROGRAMM Network

The NIPKOW PROGRAMM has, over the years, not only acquired a vast stockpile of professional contacts in the film and media world in Berlin and beyond, but its scores of former and current fellowship-holders have shared and continue to share their own set of local, national and international contacts and connections with the NIPKOW PROGRAMM and their fellowship colleagues. This has contributed to the development of an interactive worldwide network of production and industry professionals in both technical and creative spheres, as well as in the areas of financing, co-production, marketing, and distribution.
