Works in Development – Feature Launch 2021
Karlovy Vary International Film Festival has partnered closely with the MIDPOINT Institute script and project development program as well as When East Meets West co-production market and Trieste Film Festival. Together they will showcase nine projects from Central and Eastern Europe at this year’s edition of KVIFF. These projects have gone through development within the Works in Development – Feature Launch program and are ready for co-production.
Due to the situation related to Covid-19, projects selected for KVIFF Eastern Promises 2021 will be presented online. Details will be announced in May.
