Unique training platform for emerging film professionals from the region*. The one-year programme features two workshops focusing on project development, financing, and co-production opportunities; plus a brand new presentation platform, and a follow-up session. We welcome writers, directors, and producers developing their first or second feature film.

During two one-week long residential workshops, the teams will work on the creative development of the script as well as on the development, production & promotional aspects of their projects.

Residential workshops consist of group work within small groups of participants, each being led by internationally renowned and experienced script consultant, accompanied with plenary sessions and one-to-one meetings by an international team of experts from different areas of audiovisual industries, in-depth meetings with guest tutors and inspiring master-classes and case studies by renowned filmmakers and other film professionals.

During the first workshop taking place in January 2018 during Trieste Film Festival, within its established Eastweek training initiative, participants will focus on script development, creative and financing strategies as well as pitching skills.

At the second workshop, the participants will continue their work on the script development, but focus also on the marketing and distribution, sales and festival strategies as well as legal aspects and financial issues of their projects and enhance their pitching skills.

Tailor-made online consultations will follow after W1 and W2, according to the need of each project.

After the development process of two residential workshops, all 9 selected projects will be presented at the first edition of the Project Showcase @ KVIFF to a panel of industry decision makers, including funders, sales agents, producers and festival programmers. This event will take place within IFF Karlovy Vary 2018 Industry Days.

Creative teams will be prepared for the final presentation by a pitching trainer within a one-day intensive training preceding instantly the Project Showcase @ KVIFF.

To close the cycle of the one year platform, co-production market When East Meets West will invite to Trieste once again all 2018 selected producers to offer them the chance to have a follow up with their potential artistic and financing partners.
