PULA: The 69th edition of the Pula Film Festival (16 – 24 July 2022) prepared an ambitious industry programme that is taking place 17 – 22 July 2022. Thirteen feature films and seven series in development will be presented.
The industry programme is intended for film professionals from Croatia and abroad with the goal of professional networking and education, but primarily for marketing Croatian film projects in postproduction.
“The central place of this year’s Industrial programme is certainly Films in the making, where film professionals will present their films before completion to representatives of film distribution: sales agents, consultants and film festival delegates. In addition to majority Croatian projects, minority coproductions will also be presented, a total of 13 new projects”, Nataša Šimunov, the producer of the festival, told FNE.
The Croatian Directors’ Guild is organising the presentation of projects developed at the Screenwriting Workshop for live-action and documentary series in 2021, under the mentorship of Snjažana Tribuson, Ognjen Sviličić, Saše Ban and Miroslav Sikavica.
As part of the Co-production Day on 18 July 2022, a meeting of representatives of film centres, industry representatives and all film professionals is organised in order to exchange experiences, improve and strengthen business ties, and initiate new collaborations.
The programme also includes the round tables Protecting and Presenting Film Heritage, Minority Coproductions and Cooperation of Film Centres from the Region, as well as the panel discussion Engaged film today: Why do we make films?, and the Pula Academy, an educational programme targeted at students, but open to all accredited professionals.
