The programme for industry delegates at the 23rd Festival of Slovenian Film includes round-table discussions, panels, events that address topical issues in cinema, considerations on how to improve film production and distribution conditions in Slovenia, exchange of experience and knowledge, and efforts to build and foster collaborations with international partners.
The main event in this year’s industry programme is a panel discussion on film and audiovisual production and distribution entitled Slovenian Cinema in Post-pandemic World, featuring Slovenia-based film producers, acclaimed filmmakers, and representatives of institutions that shape the film and audiovisual industries in Slovenia. Sharing their views, experience and knowledge, the panel of speakers will focus on the outlooks for film and audiovisual industries in a world affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
By tradition, the industry programme features the International Coproduction Meeting, an event aimed at encouraging closer cooperation between Slovenian and foreign professionals from across the film industry (producers, festival programmers, sales agents, distributors, etc.). In collaboration with Motovila (Creative Europe Desk Slovenia), we are organising a panel discussion titled A new boost for (creative) documentary film, aiming to strategically encourage the development of Slovenian documentary cinema and create the best possible conditions for its creative and production boost and international breakthrough.
Another organisation to help shape the industry programme is AIPA, an agency for the enforcement of rights on audiovisual works, as the host of the event entitled The Economic Importance of Audiovisual Industry and its Position in View of Covid-19.
Meanwhile, the Directors Guild of Slovenia (DSR) will present the past achievements and future plans of its Scenarnica screenwriting workshop.
