TUESDAY, 12. SEPTEMBER 2017,  GREEN HALL
16.30-18.00
Films made in Slovenia after the country gained its independence, as opposed to those produced earlier, have been marked by new constructions of nationality and the changing social realities of young generations, who take greater interest in issues related to gender and sexual identity. Increasing attention has been paid to short and independent films after they had traditionally been pushed to the margins of public discourse.
 
WEDNESDAY, 13. SEPTEMBER 2017,  GREEN HALL
11:00–13:00
In addition to a vast collection of audio and video materials, the archives of the Slovenian National Radio and Television keep a variety of films in b&w or colour that fill just short of 20 million metres of film stock, with audio recordings on separate magnetic tapes and sound track negative. Aiming to preserve the archive and save it from decay, the national broadcasting organisation has established the Mediatheque, a new department tasked with building a central digital archive for permanent storage of audio-visual works.
 
WEDNESDAY, 13. SEPTEMBER 2017,  GREEN HALL
15.00-16.30
František Čáp was a successful Czech director during WWII, who was forced to leave Czechoslovakia due to political changes after the 1948 coup. Paradoxically, he found his new home in another communist country and became one of the founders of Slovenian cinema. His journey from one place to another was, however, not straightforward.
 
THURSDAY, 14. SEPTEMBER 2017,  GREEN HALL

New technologies encourage and give rise to innovation, which, in turn, opens up new business opportunities and processes, thus altering the traditional ways of working and collaborating. The panel will bring together relevant experts to tackle the issue of the implications of digitisation for individuals involved in the making of audio-visual works, and help us recognise both the new business opportunities and the pitfalls this entails.

Anyone working in film production knows very well what a “priceless film professional” means, and can instantly produce a list of names, surnames, but especially the nicknames they go by. Without them, we cannot even begin to imagine either a good working process or a good end result.
