Such an event offers also unique possibilities of meeting foreign profesionals and producers looking for new talents and interesting topics from our region. The program will offer formal and informal oportunities how to meet them and discuss possibilities of coproductions in our region between countries with different production capacity. There will be also several case studies presented of such coproduction cooperation.
