The eighth edition of New Horizons Studio+ will take place 5-8 August during the 17th T-Mobile New Horizons International Film Festival (3-13 August 2017).
New Horizons Studio+, organized by the New Horizons Association and Creative Europe Desk Polska, involves four days of workshops and lectures on various aspects related to the promotion and development of projects. Its main task is to provide young professionals with knowledge about the international film market, as well as to help them in determining their career paths.
New Horizons Studio+ is introducing a lot of innovations this year.
We are proud to announce that we have a wonderful new partner: EAVE. This is one of the leading professional training, project development and networking organization in Europe, and is also the organizer of the EAVE Producers Workshop and the EAVE Marketing Workshop.
The British Council will also be a partner this year. A special guest from the United Kingdom will give a lecture as part of Creativity Talks.
We are happy to continue working with the London Film Academy, one of our long-time partners.
Our partnership with the Romanian Institute of Culture, German Films and the Austrian Cultural Forum also provides invaluable support.
This year's lineup of lecturers includes the following outstanding experts: David Pope (London Film Academy); Alya Belgaroui (EAVE), sales agent representing Wild Bunch; Aranka Matits (EAVE), representing Featurette; Mark Lautman from Intermission Film; Raquel Cabrera from The Film Agency; Jakub Duszyński from Gutek Film; and Jan Naszewski from New Europe Film Sales.
Media partners include Film & TV Kamera, Film Pro and Film New Europe.
Having changed its format this year, Studio New Horizons+ will be for director-producer pairs who are developing their first or second feature film. There will be 10 participants from Poland and 10 from Hungary, Austria, Germany, Romania, and the United Kingdom.
