From Producers to Producers at the Locarno Film Festival
Call for participation
From Producers to Producers
An annual invitation by the Swiss producers for a peer to peer exchange of experiences with European producers at the Locarno Film Festival
How can a creative producer build a sustainable independent business
This producers’ meeting is divided into two parts — a thematic debate (1.5 hours) and a reception to encourage contacts between professionals (1.5 hours).
Based on the testimonies of experienced European producers, the discussion will focus on the key factors to consider when designing a business plan and developing a slate of projects. This exchange will give all producers attending the event the opportunity to question their mid-term company development strategy. The questions dealt with will include What are my objectives for the next five years? With which projects and stories? Which directors will be involved? What are my expectations in terms of business prospects and financial consequences for my company?
After the debate, the participating producers will be invited to continue the discussions in a more relaxed atmosphere (terrace and cocktail), pitch their projects and/or make new contacts with producers as well as with representatives of the European professional training organizations taking part in this event.
Monday 6 August 2012, from 15.00 to 18.00, at the Hotel Belvedere in Locarno. Welcome from 14.30
Registration deadline: 27 July 2012. The event is free of charge but prior registration with FOCAL is compulsory at: www.focal.ch/FPtP_ch
