11.02.2015 - Paulo de Carvalho, Juliette Lepoutre, Raymond Phathanavirangoon, moderated by Katriel Schory
In this in-depth session, executive director of the Israel Film Fund and longtime film producer Katriel Schory moderates international producers on the current challenges in film producing, highlighting new business models and practices that are making waves today. Short keynote presentations on speci-fic topics by the experts will be punctuated by interactive discussions with the audience and other experts. Along the long road "from idea to the poster," where can producers diverge and impact their projects for the better? And how do they choose the project they want to develop and why? With regard to an everchanging industry landscape, how do the responsibilities of producer and distributor increasingly overlap, and are "impact producer" or "producer of marketing" the job descriptions of tomorrow? Schory and the experts will also elaborate on how you can identify the ideal co-production partners and build an international identity for your project while maintaining your personal voice. The session will allow experts and audience to look at what the future of producing holds without losing sight of the current state of affairs.
For 25 years, Katriel Shory has been an active producer with his own production company, Belfilms, which has produced over 150 films including fiction, documentaries, TV dramas, TV shows and international co-productions. Since 1999, he has been the Executive Director of the Israel Film Fund and in this capacity has authorised the production of 240 new Israeli feature films.
