Meet and learn from the best at the Industry@Tallinn Film Festival Programmers’ Talks

A specific workshop for festival programming brings together programmers of Cannes, Venice, Toronto, Pusan, Sitges, Puchon, Karlovy Vary and Nippon Connection. Get tips and network with the best professionals and discuss the most pressing issues in the festival cycle. 

Paolo Bertolin (Venice Film Festival & DohaFilmInstitute), Chanil Jeon (Busan Film Festival), Lenka Tyrpakova (Karlovy Vary Film Festival) and Dennis Vetter (Nippon Connection Film Festival) will discuss programming politics in the increasing competition for premieres. Mike Hostench & Angel Sala (Sitges Film Festival), Jin Park (Puchon Film Festival), Stephanie Trepanier (Fantasia Film Festival) with special guest Brontis Jodorowsky will deal with building fan communities of festivals.

Stefan Laudyn (Warsaw Film Festival), Natalie Lue (Toronto Film Festival), Anne Delseth (Cannes Critics Week) and Paolo Bertolin (Venice Film Festival) will host a round table about the balance between quantity and quality at festivals.

During the past decade the role of film festivals has changed drastically from showcases of national cinema, to sites of international business in production, sales and development of new talents. Combined with the increasing stress on demand of world premieres in key festivals, the changes have also tremendously impacted not only the programming decisions, but also the whole production and distribution cycle influencing the film sector as a whole from producers to the sales agents and festivals as well.

 

The topics include:

programming politics in the increasing competition for premieres

how to achieve a balanced distribution of films across the festival calendar

keeping the identity and focus of sidebars within a bigger festival landscape

the relationship and possibilities for specialized genre and niche festivals

how much is enough for a festival to be a festival?

how to communicate smaller films in the program of “mega-festivals”
