VFF discussions | distribution | public funding | media | & film

Let's talk about RTVS, journey of the film to the audience, cinematic funds and films.

MARCH 13TH, 2014 | THURSDAY | FTF VSMU | 15.00
Journey of the film to the audience!
Discussion about how does film distribution works nowadays.

What does “film distribution” mean today? Our guests will discuss current possibilities of film distribution and combinations of individual ways of bringing a film to its audiences. Who are the main “distributors” of a film and how should they collaborate to achieve the best possible results? How much does film promotion matter? What are the options for young filmmakers, newcomers to the changing landscape of distribution and audiences? If you are interested in finding out answers for these questions, just join us for the discussion about journey of the film to its audience.

Panellists | Nikolaj Nikitin (Berlinale, SOFA), Radoslaw Drabik (KinoMedia), Diana Tabakov (DocAlliance, DAFilms.cz), Ivan Hronec (Film Europe), Sergej Stanojkovski (Film Forum Zadar)

Creative Morning with Christian Berger

Project Creative morning / Kreatívne ráno has become quite popular since the beginning in 2011. The idea of creative morning sessions with delicious breakfast, coffee and inspirational guest was implemented by local NGO Midl. Guests who are coming to Kreatívne ráno are often people with great ideas, inspiring successful projects and professions. Among almost 50 guests, Kreatívne ráno welcomed the director of Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum Piotr Cywinski, the director of Slovak National Gallery Alexandra Kusá, or Austrian designers from Mischer’Traxler studio.

During VFF, Kreatívne ráno will welcome a special guest; an Oscar nominated Austrian cinematographer, director, producer and documentary writer Christian Berger.



MARCH 14TH, 2014 | FRIDAY | FTF VSMU | 11.45
Discussion of Visegrad Film Funds representatives

The very first public discussion of directors of the national funds from Austria (Gerlinde Seitner, director, Vienna Film Fund) and V4 countries: Czech Republic (Helena Frankova, appointed director, State Fund of Cinematography), Hungary (Péter Miskolczi, production director, Hungarian National Film Fund), Poland (Joanna Wendorff-Østergaard, head of institutional international relations of Polish Film Institute) and Slovakia (Martin Šmatlák, director, Slovak Audiovisual Fund).

Objectives of the meeting are to create a space for open and partnerial discussion as a platform for a mutual exchange of experience and for potential coordination of activities of the funds from Austria and V4. Another goal is to present possibilities of obtaining support for film projects, particularly directed at coproduction conditions to propose concrete solutions which can possibly increase a coproduction potential of audiovisual industries in the V4 countries and Austria and on the other side to propose concrete solutions which can possibly lead to increase of circulation of films within Central Europe (V4, Austria). We would like such meetings to become a regular space for partnerial and friendly cooperation in the future.

MARCH 14TH, 2014 | FRIDAY | KC Dunaj | 16.00
Let's talk about RTVS (only in Slovak)

Časopis KINEČKO v spolupráci s portálom www.slovakfilm.sk organizujú spoločne verejné odborné diskusie Poďme hovoriť o... o nových slovenských filmoch a súčasných problémoch slovenskej kinematografie už od júna 2013. Projekt je doplnený o interaktívnu stránku www.slovakfilm.sk, kde okrem živého streamingu z diskusie budú uverejnené aj audiovizuálne výstupy, s možnosťou ďalšej diskusie. Aktívna diskusia má slúžiť ako „praktický výstup“, ktorý umožní konfrontáciu medzi odbornou verejnosťou, divákmi a tvorcami. Vzhľadom na absenciu systematickej reflexie audiovizuálnej tvorby a absenciu odborného dialógu má projekt umožniť komunikáciu medzi tvorcami, inštitúciami, ako aj divákmi.

Súčasťou VFF bude štvrtá zo sérii diskusií, tentokrát s názvom Poďme hovoriť o RTVS!. Diskutovať sa bude nielen počas živého stretnutia na mieste, ale aj na www.slovakfilm.sk, kde bude prebiehať live streaming. Hlavnou témou diskusie bude RTVS, jej úloha v audiovizuálnom prostredí, financovanie ale aj estetika a vysielanie filmov. Budúcnosť slovenského filmu je aj vo vašich rukách!
