These are our proposals:

  • a video-library with the aim to promote short movie for professional use. This will be available only during AFF-SMI days and for professionals with festival accreditation. There will be some screenings as well, at the Cineteca of Rimini, still only for professionals.
  • round tables, conferences and meetings with professionals
    Monday, Dec. 11th, 3pm: Creative Europe - opportunities for producers (held by a representative of Creative Europe Desk of Turin) Tuesday, Dec. 12th, 3pm: Masterclass on short movies distribution (with Italian and international distributors). To follow: distributors meet other professionals.
  • "Block notes", a pitch for authors who want to make a short movie and have already made a teaser, or found a part of required funds.
    Wednesday, Dec. 13th, 3pm: presentation of selected projects.

All these events will take place in a special area dedicated to AFF-SMI.
In this area there will be places available to organize your own meetings as well.
