WINDOW TO THE WORLD – Project Presentations in Various Production Stages
The project workshop Window to the World throws its glance out into the world to focus on projects in various stages of production. This section of SCHLiNGEL’s INDUSTRY FORUM, therefore, offers the opportunity for presenters to find distributors or future partners to co-produce.
Not only will these presentations be presented to the expert audience on-site, but those holding an accreditation will have access to them online. After the projects are presented, the filmmakers themselves will have a chance to speak.
The project workshop will take place on Tuesday, 12th October 2021, at the Chemnitzer Hof.
