Works in Development – Feature Launch
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 Feature Launch 2020 program and are ready for co-production.
KVIFF is carefully monitoring the situation related to Covid-19 with high hopes to present its selection of KVIFF Eastern Promises Projects during the planned Industry Days. Should there be a need to make any adjustments, we will strive to make it a priority that all projects are presented in the most effective fashion permitted by the circumstances.
Works in Development – Feature Launch 2020 is planned for Tuesday, July 7
Teams of writers, directors and producers have up to seven minutes to present each project, including visuals. Following the project presentation, we assist interested visitors of the Works in Development – Feature Launch to set up individual meetings with the teams to get more information about their projects.
