Special Screenings: A Taste of KVIFF Films
Wednesday 5 July, 10am–12:30pm / Cinema A
The KVIFF programme is packed with film titles that reflect the festival’s position as a gateway to the region. Not everyone has the time to see all the films that KVIFF traditionally selects for its competitions. This careful selection of films from the festival’s main competition and the East of the West competitions allows film professionals to get a taste of what’s on offer. While some festival films can be viewed later in our video library or on Cinando, a good curated overview can guide you towards a more thorough follow-up.
As capacity is limited, only registered guests will be guaranteed a place, subject to availability. Please register at email@example.com or at the Industry Office Reception.
Beyond Public Film Funding – Private Equity and Loans
Wednesday 5 July, 1:30–3pm / Industry Pool, Hotel Thermal
Financing a film is a complex and risky process that usually relies heavily on financial contributions from state institutions. However, with a limited pie to share, other options need attention as well. How can you involve other players in your budgeting and what special approach should you take when reaching out to banks and private equity investors? What are their expectations, what precautions do they take and how can you best deliver what they want? This panel discussion with representatives from banks, film funds and private donors will provide better insight into these questions. Hosted by Barrandov Studio.

Perspectives of Branded Content in Film-making: Helping to Find Demand for Short Films
Wednesday 5 July, 3–5pm / Industry Pool, Hotel Thermal
The challenge for many filmmakers is to find a purpose for their creative storytelling. Not all films are supported by public money, and few are lucky to get produced. The local Czech short film format in particular is facing difficulties because market demand is low and there are few incentives to make short films. At the same time, the format is convenient for today’s fast-paced media consumption. Could corporations become better patrons for filmmakers by giving them an opportunity to unleash their creative potential while helping strengthen their brand? At this panel discussion, experts, filmmakers and representatives of private companies share their motivations for using film in connection with branding.
