Financial planning is one of the most challenging tasks festival organisers must 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 cancel projects.
However, this bleak image might only be partially true, and ways to find funding opportunities and make successful bids are available. This panel talk provides insight into successful collaborative projects and European role-model cooperation and analyses the pros and cons of creative international network solutions. An important focus is on the new Creative Europe’s scheme for film festival networks.
