Works in Development – Feature Launch 2023
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 eight 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.
Works in Development – Feature Launch 2023 details
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.
The selected projects will be presented on Monday, July 3 at 10:30 CET in Čas Cinema.
One-on-one meetings with the production teams will take place in Lázně III – Blue Lounge on Tuesday, July 4 at 10:00 CET.
Besides the on-site project showcases, we will also enable online participation for selected film industry professionals who can't attend this year's KVIFF in person but would like to watch the projects and/or arrange one-on-one meetings with their creators online.
If that's your case, please fill in this form to request your registration.
The Film Industry Office will be in touch with you with further information in case the access is granted.
