14:00-15:00 CET
Early Bird Online Panel: Alternative Distribution Strategies and New Opportunities for Producers from Central and Eastern Europe
Hosted by First Cut+, Speakers: Katarzyna Siniarska from New Europe Film Sales, Nguyet Nguyenova from Gruvi and Lucero Garzon from Cinemarket hub. Moderated by Leo Barraclough, VARIETY

By examining the growing market of new digital opportunities for right holders, we find that there is a growing panorama of platforms for the distribution and promotion of independent films.
Both Eastern and Central Europe have seen a steady increase in local productions, but are not finding the right platforms to find the exposure they need.
Which VOD/SVOD platforms are looking for this content? What are the opportunities for right holders to reach international buyers? Who are the new players entering into this expanding digital panorama? And how can we continue to engage online audiences in such a crowded market?
Interesting for: Filmmakers, producers and distributors.

INDUSTRY HERE
Karlovy Vary International Film Festival and Creative Europe Desk host a live panel discussion about the Czech film industry in time of the pandemic crisis, its impact and possible prospects for future.

Speakers at the panel will represent the broadest professional spectre of the local Czech audiovisual industry: producers, filmmakers, distributors, exhibitors, representatives of Czech Film Fund and Ministry of Culture, film festivals and VOD platforms. The session’s aim will be to give an overview of the past months, impact on individual sectors and professions and evaluation of the efficiency of the measures that were taken by the film industry. Moreover, a discussion will focus on the new functional models, their sustainability and impact in both possible future scenarios: positive development or a forced return to the crisis mode.
