The International Co-Production Forum Regiofund will be held in Katowice from 4th through 7th October. The event is visited by film producers, representatives of European film funds, financial institutions, regional film funds, and local authorities, as well as private investors, television broadcasters, distributors, sales agents, and film distributors.
From among the projects submitted to Regiofund Forum from all over the world, the organizers have chosen 10 carefully selected film and TV series projects with international co-production potential. The qualified projects come from Poland, Albania, Romania, Italy, Austria, and Great Britain.
The pitching session is scheduled for the 6th of October and will be conducted before an international group of Regiofund’s guests who represent various areas of film industry, from financial institutions and regional film funds to film distributors and sales agents.
CONCEPTThe idea of creating the International Co-Production Forum Regiofund comes from the belief that a film along with every stage of its production may constitute a perfect tool both in the fields of advertisement and investment.
The Regiofund Forum was inspired by the need for developing and improving professional events organized during eight editions of the International Festival of Film Producers Regiofun. By resigning from the festival part we would like to focus our attention on providing an opportunity for developing film projects with a co-production potential and creating a cooperation platform for film and business industries.
The event associates film producers, representatives of European film funds, financing institutions, private investors as well as television broadcasters, sales agents and distributors.
PROGRAMMEA programme frame of the Regiofund Forum includes professional events connected with the film co-production. The programme consists of:
