Join us on Wednesday in cinema Lumiere in Bratislava, to attend a case study of Sigrid Dykjaer and Freddy Neumann, showing how from a peripheal topic, like the brain research, grows up a film with a wide audience coming to cinemas in both Europe and USA. What are the opportunities for a producer to start the international career of his fim? How the marketing communication can be arranged in order to invite very different groups of people for your film? Come, take a glass of wine and a snack with us and discuss with the renowned experts..
We are happy to announce we have recieved the support from MEDIA Mundus programme and from the next year we are cooperating with Independent Filmmaker Project (IFP), sending one of our participating films to the INDEPENDENT WEEK in New York! It will enable a direct access of our participants to the US´ audience and film market.

Do not hesitate to meet us at Karlovy Vary IFF, July 3rd-5th! for more info email@example.com
Leave the paper! Let´s pilot…
The pilomaking, a new approach to the dramaturgy and presentation of the documentary projects makes part of a huge recent success of the Danish films…
Paperwork supposed to be the tax for the financing for a film: write a treatment, add a script, describe director´s motivation statement…but a documentary cannot really be programmed by the desk! All that words anyway can´t ever express precisly what is the film about. Why not to dedicate your time to the film – instead of paperwork? Successful Danish documentary producers found the way out of it: their films have no treatment, no script; they are shot and edited from the very beginning. Pilots are not trailers, they don´t sell a finish film, but express the essence of a film (in development), help the director to understand better the topic, main characters, his own approach: directors clear the idea, producers understand better and the funds accept them instead of tons of paper!
