press release

DEADLINE: October 30, 2021

The next edition of WEMW will mark the start of a brand-new era in the design and planning of the co-production market. After ten years based on a traditional physical format and one year run fully online, the new generation of WEMW will introduce a new concept based on hybrid content & format, with a full horizontal integration between physical and virtual participants. WEMW will take place on January 24-28, 2022 and it will include a first module of three days running both on-site in Trieste and online, and a second module available only on the WEMW digital platform. The heart of the event will still be the WEMW Co-Production Forum dedicated to documentaries and feature films in development from all over Europe and beyond. The upcoming edition of WEMW will bring together over 600 film professionals from more than 50 countries, in particular from the 2022 East & West countries in focus: Russia & UK, Ireland, Canada and USA.
