First European festivals training event to run during the Motovun Film Festival in Croatia

The MEDIA programme is supporting the first Europe-wide training and collaboration event for film festivals, which will take place at this year’s Motovun Film Festival (July 25-29, 2011) in Croatia.

The event aims to bring together film festival professionals from across Europe and assist them in developing innovative film programmes, reach wider audiences and raise their festival’s profile.

The scheme will be led by industry experts from organisations such as Rotterdam, Berlinale Generation, Vilnius International Film Festival and onedotzero and will include talks, workshops, practical exercises and group discussions and networking opportunities, followed by two days of screenings at the Motovun Festival.
