COTTBUS: The Man with the Answers, a Cypriot/Greek roadmovie that travels from Italy through Austria to Germany, was seeking production partners from those countries at the Connecting Cottbus pitching forum, held 7-8 November 2013.
Cypriot producer/director Stelio Kammitsis and Greek producer Vicky Miha told FNE that although they have an estimated budget of 840,000 EUR, they are also prepared to do a scaled back low-budget version of the film, probably in the range of something over 200,000 EUR. The film has 60,000 of in-kind financing in place through Kammitsis’s own production company, Felony Productions. The film project also received support from the NIPKOW Programme and the MEDIA Programme.
The central character is a young man who leaves his homeland to find the mother who seemingly abandoned him when she emigrated. In his travels he meets another young man whose actions lead him to change his own view of his life.
The producers said they are looking for a soundtrack of music from young contemporary musicians from the countries the film visits, with the intent to use the music as a way to also promote the film. The team also noted that there are several creative positions open on the film.
