FESTIVALS: CINEIndustry Film Market Holds Hybrid Edition

By

SKOPJE: The Association of Macedonian film distributors and CINEDAYS European Film Festival are hosting the 2nd CINEIndustry Film market, taking place 25 – 30 November 2020.

Due to the effects of the COVID-19 crisis on the 2020 market, the CINEIndustry film market is dedicated entirely to film distribution and the challenges facing distributors and the distribution chain.

In addition, six Macedonian feature projects in development will be pitched to industry guests, including sales agents and distributors. The six-day event will be a hybrid edition, combining on-site and online events.

The event would have been held in conjunction with the Cinedays Festival of European Film, which took place two months earlier than its regular November dates, with a reduced programme lasting fewer days.

The event is supported by the Ministry of Culture of North Macedonia.
