There are many connections between these two countries linked by the Danube River and common history. But when it comes to film industry, the situation remains the same as it has been while the Iron Curtain divided both countries along their border. Why? And what can we do in order to change it? Let’s find out together with producers and Fund representatives from both countries.

17:00 VŠMU Cinema
Slovak films gained strong recognition at the festival circuit in recent past. Starting in Rotterdam a few years ago when My Dog Killer by Mira Fornay won one of the main prizes in the official competition, then Director’s Fortnight welcomed Blind Loves by Juraj Lehotský, Berlinale hosted Koza by Ivan Ostrochovský and Toronto introduced Eva Nova by Marko Škop to international audiences in world premiere, just to name a few. But is it enough also for wider distribution? Laurent Danielu from French Sales Company Loco Films will present his experience of selling two very diverse Slovak titles - Eva Nova by Marko Škop and Little Harbour by Iveta Grófová that has been world premiered just now at the Berlinale 2017 and received the Crystal Bear for the Best Film of Berlinale Generation Kplus section, awarded by the Children´s Jury.

Film societies or film clubs were funded in the 1960s in order to work closely with the public and help promoting auteur cinema in Europe. But does it still make sense today? Is it still a sustainable platform for cinematic distribution? How strong is the influence of Film clubs in contemporary Europe? We want to welcome representatives of French ACID, Polish Zuborffka, Association of Slovak Film Clubs and others in order to understand better how to use this old-fashioned system as an advantage for arthouse distribution.

19:00 Cinema Lumière, K1 hall
Followed by screening of SPOOR (Pokot) directed by Agnieszka Holland with the presence of the director.

The platform Industry Days is organized by IFCF Febiofest, Association of Slovak Film Clubs and Slovak Film Institute.
