Industry Events

 

 

WEDNESDAY, 12 SEPTEMBER, GREEN HALL
17.00-18.30
The Slovenian film industry has only recently started to reflect on the profile of individuals who get to make films in Slovenia. When watching images of Slovenian films, whose gaze are we seeing? Using examples from Slovenian cinema, the panellists will examine who influences the images of Slovenian cinema, what they look like, and how they work to perpetuate and reinforce or change the present social reality.
 
THURSDAY, 13 SEPTEMBER, GREEN HALL
10:00–12:30
Despite the uniform legal framework on the issue of copyright and audio-visual works (international agreements, directives and regulations), its transposition into national law varies from country to country. How are rights-holders protected in Slovenia (in theory, at least)? How are they protected in Croatia and Serbia? And what is the situation in practice when it comes to the implementation of the national law?
 
THURSDAY, 13 SEPTEMBER, GREEN HALL
13.30-16.00
Film editing is the art of assembling a film in a way that allows filmmakers to enhance the expressive power of their medium in terms of dramatic structure and syntax. Due to the inappropriate categorisation of picture and sound editors in the Slovenian law, and the failure to categorise sound designers of audio-visual works as “co-authors of audio-visual works”, these trades are denied the legal rights they should enjoy as key co-authors.
 
FRIDAY, 14 SEPTEMBER, GREEN HALL
09.30-12.00
The second in a series of co-production meetings focuses on Serbian cinema, featuring presentations of funding opportunities, locations in Serbia, and examples of successful co-productions between Serbia and Slovenia and third countries. This will be followed by a brief summary of last year’s Co-production Meeting with Austrian Cinema.
FRIDAY, 14 SEPTEMBER, GREEN HALL
14.30-18.00
Motovila (Creative Europe Desk Slovenia), the Festival of Slovenian Film, RE-ACT and MAIA Workshops – a Creative Europe MEDIA-supported European training programme, one of which in its 2018 edition takes place in Portorož during the 21st FSF – are organising an open seminar with MAIA tutor for digital marketing, Daniel Díaz. Using practical examples, the seminar will give an insight into the (increasingly) important issue of film marketing and promotion.
 
SATURDAY, 15 SEPTEMBER, MONFORT EXHIBITION SPACE
10.00-12.00
The Co-production Meeting with a focus on Serbia will conclude on Saturday with one-to-one business meetings between producers from the two countries. The opportunity to present their work and meet potential co-production partners will be given to a select group of Slovenian and visiting Serbian producers with works in progress that show adequate co-production potential.
 
SATURDAY, 15 SEPTEMBER, GREEN HALL
10.30-13.00
Organised by the Directors Guild of Slovenia, the Slovenian Association of Postproduction Artists, and the Ljubljana Academy of Theatre, Radio, Film and Television, the panel will shed light on script supervisors – film crew members that usually fall out of the spotlight, even though they are crucial to the right position of lights in a film.
 
SATURDAY, 15 SEPTEMBER, GREEN HALL
14.00-16.00
Scenarnica is an intensive screenwriting workshop focusing on what could possibly be the most difficult stage of the creative process – turning an idea into the first version of the screenplay. Workshop presentation by its artistic head Matevž Luzar and mentor Srđan Koljević will be followed by project pitches by this year’s participants
 
SATURDAY, 15 SEPTEMBER, WHITE HALL
16.30-17.30
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.
 
ALL FESTIVAL DAYS,  AVDITORIJ
The 21st edition of the Festival of Slovenian film continues the tradition of secondary school students from the region sharpening their views and putting their pens to paper. A group of participants will meet daily in a relaxed creative atmosphere to learn about the specifics of various genres of Slovenian cinema and about contemporary trends, paying special attention to young independent filmmakers and to subjects relevant to students in their daily lives.
