A discussion panel with participants who are representatives of cinemas and film festivals, producers, as well as other Polish and German individuals working with film. The topic will be trans-border cooperation within the context of presenting and promoting independent Polish cinema in Germany and independent German cinema in Poland.
The discussion will be based on non-commercial productions that constitute the independent voice of creators for whom the digitised world is a chance to surface. Our guests will present various views on the development of partnership within independent cinema as well as their own opinions, backing them with the experience gained in the cinema and festival industries. They will attempt to establish the importance of trans-border cooperation for presentation and promotion, and what are the possibilities for promoting films in Poland and Germany.
The discussion will draw from the model cooperation between FiSH – Filmfestival im StadtHafen Rostock, Rügen International Film Festival, and Szczecin European Film Festival.
