Welcome to T-Port
We bridge the gap between emerging filmmakers and the global professional film industry
T-Port is an innovative non-profit online platform aimed at promoting emerging talent and facilitating the distribution of short films within the professional film industry. The platform hosts 1400+ titles made by independent filmmakers and students, including award-winning films and top-festival selections. We focus on creating a link between emerging talents and industry professionals – programmers, buyers, sales agents & distributors scouting for short films and talent, as well as producers, talent agencies & promotion bodies, who are searching for their next discovery. The platform also curates a selection of high-quality films to fit the specific needs of festivals and professionals. T-Port is an independent non-profit association based in Berlin, Germany supported by the Creative Europe MEDIA program, the Gesher Multicultural Film Fund (Israel’s largest film fund for short films) and by our founding partner, Tel- Aviv University.
Our main goal is to bridge the gap between emerging filmmakers and the professional global film industry using cutting edge technologies to create a viable network and to maximize the audience outreach of films made by students and short filmmakers worldwide.
INDUSTRY ACTIVITY & MARKET PRESENCE
T-Port has an extensive Pan-European network of over 40 leading organisations, including film festivals and markets, online VOD platforms, sales agents, producers, buyers, national agencies and film schools. These partnerships enable us to promote the films, facilitate their distribution and expand their audience reach worldwide. We understood early on that an online presence can compliment real life activities. As a pioneer in the field of digital promotion for film professionals prior to COVID-19, T-Port had attended major in-person film industry events across Europe and globally to accompany our online activity. With the global crisis and limitations for “on location” events in 2020-21, we were ready to adopt online and hybrid models from the get-go. T-Port holds
