Film Festivals Days 2019 – Final program

A new event is launching this fall: the 1st edition of Film Festivals Days, a conference that will offer the first educational platform for organizers of Film Festivals, celebrated in Pula (Croatia) on Sunday 20th and Monday 21st of October, 2019.

 

This event, aimed at organizers of film festivals in Europe, who are planning, developing, creating, organizing or contributing in various forms to European Film Festivals, is organized by dreaMaker Productions, the people behind the organization of the well-known ISFMF (International Sound & Film Music Festival) in Croatia, with its executive director, Marijana Knezoci, leading the team.

 

Thus it is no coincidence that Film Festivals Days 2019 and ISFMF 2019 (read more) share dates and place (although not program), as they will complement each other, and will let audiences from both events generate new synergies.
