Works in Development – Feature Launch

Karlovy Vary International Film Festival has partnered closely with the MIDPOINT 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 2019 program and are ready for co-production.
