Friuli Venezia Giulia Film Commission - Audiovisual Regional Fund in collaboration with the Trieste Film Festival, organizes the first edition of WHEN EAST MEETS WEST, a two-day cross-border meeting aimed at gathering producers, broadcasters, agencies, markets and funds representatives from Eastern andWestern European regions, to where Film Fund Győr was also invited. At the meeting Mr. Hartyándi Jenő will represent the Fund.
The event take place on the 26th and 27 of January 2010.
The main idea is to create a bridge between Eastern and Western European film industries during the Trieste Film Festival, with round-tables, case-studies and meetings aimed at linking the different regions and countries involved. Each year Friuli Venezia Giulia Film Commission - Audiovisual Regional Fund and the festival will invite delegations from different countries, making Trieste a meeting place for Eastern producers keen to coproduce with Western ones, as well as the other way round.
This first year, the focus on the Western side will be exclusively on Spain, thanks to the precious collaboration with the CATALAN FILMS&TV, the agency for the promotion of the Catalan film industry. A Spanish delegation formed by funds and agencies representatives, producers and broadcasters will offer an in-depth view on the financial sources available, the distribution opportunities and the production landscape.
