Panel discussion: Slovak Film Commission presents...
The Slovak film industry has been impatiently anticipating the establishment of Slovak Film Commission (SFC), as there previously hadn’t been any institution offering services and locations at foreign events in a coherent manner, like it is in other countries. Film commissioner Zuzana Bieliková and her team will talk about what is the agency’s job and what are its plans for the Slovak film industry in the near future. In the second half of the panel, the SFC will present representatives from the surrounding regional film agencies and the possibilities of filming or obtaining funding from regional funds. Part of of the panel will be the presentation of Slovak Business Agency.
Slovak Business Agency (SBA) will present the possibilities of using free services of the National Business Center and Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs. You will learn new ways to travel free of charge to an international conference and market in the EU, how to get a free consultant to help you write grant applications. Find out how you can take part in seminars, lectures and lessons for free workshops to help you start your business or move it up. Have you heard about the European Youth Exchange Program?
