EMERGING PRODUCERS 2017 / 5th edition

October 26–30, 2016 / Jihlava IDFF

Producer with a several years’ practice on the local market (i.e. not a student or recent graduate) with a capacity for future professional growth and with ambitions to be active on the European market; At least one realized film (fiction or documentary, mid-length or feature) which has entered theatrical distribution, has been screened at a festival etc.; Previous participations at other workshops is considered an advantage.

Eligible countries: EU Member states (Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the UK), Switzerland, Island, Liechtenstein, Norway, Turkey, countries of Western Balkans (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Kosovo, Montenegro, Serbia) and Eastern Partnership countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine) and Russia. 

The programme is divided into three main parts:

Promotion | Various levels of presentation of EP (Evening Show presentation, Meeting with established European producers, Lunch with festival directors etc.)

Networking |Making quick and easy contact with the VIPs of the documentary film industry community (One-to-One meetings, practical attendance at other industry events etc.)

Navigation | Getting oriented in European film industry and institutions (via master classes, case studies and lectures)

PROMOTION

The programme includes a personal presentation of the producers as well as an official presentation to film professionals and press. The Emerging Producers project is accompanied by a special catalogue including photographs, CVs, motivation texts and basic information concerning each of the producers.

NETWORKING

A fundamental part of the EP programme consists in various forms of informal meetings where people get to know each other and gain easy access to contacts for future international co-operations unlike in official negotiations and e-mail correspondence. However, we are particular about the fact that even the informal meetings have a specific form with a reasonable purpose to fulfil the networking aim.The individual meetings are planned for carefully selected specific circles of professionals. The aim is to help the producers meet all the important persons in the field of audio-vision present at the Industry Programme in the course of the project. For a higher efficiency of the individual meetings, a great emphasis is placed on the seating plan. This will increase the efficiency of the event and will prevent the clustering of people from the same regions who already know each other.

NAVIGATION

In today’s times of rapid technological development and an expanding film market, it is often very hard for a beginning producer to get oriented on the film market and understand how the whole mechanism works. It may take several years for a talented producer to meet the right group of people where he or she can start co-operating, financing and producing his or her films.The Jihlava Industry Programme is conceived so as to represent a real entrance gate to the film industry with a focus on creative documentary film and its forms overlapping with fiction film and various reality TV formats. It also focuses on the essential branches in the field of distribution and film sales with the aim of making the producers’ way to the desired results easier.In today’s times of rapid technological development and an expanding film market, it is often very hard for a beginning producer to get oriented on the film market and understand its mechanisms. The individual parts of the EP programme create an information cluster to help a beginning European producer get oriented on the market.
