Financial Planning, Collaborations and Creativity at Film Festivals
organiser: Torino Short Film Market
location: Torino, Italy
date: November 21st 2019
synopsis: The workshop will provide an insight in successful collaborative projects and creative international network solutions for film events. An important focus will be dedicated to the new Creative Europe’s scheme for film festivals networks Financial planning is certainly one of the most difficult tasks festival organisers have to tackle. Public resources and funding opportunities seem to shrink year by year and, especially in the short film circuit, the absence of major private sponsors allegedly condemns festival organisers to either reduce the budget or even cancel projects. However this bleak image might not be entirely true and ways to find funding opportunities and make successful bids are available. The workshop will provide an insight in successful collaborative projects and European role-model co-operations and analyse the pros and contras of creative international network solutions for film events (and how they can be helpful in terms of festival funding). An important focus will be dedicated to Creative Europe MEDIA and the responsibilities of festivals towards their funding partners, their network partners and their own teams.
