    Online Access to the Projects

    This year's KVIFF Eastern Promises project showcases are taking place primarily on-site in Karlovy Vary. However, we will also enable online participation for selected film industry professionals who can't attend this year's KVIFF in person but would like to watch the projects and/or arrange one-on-one meetings with their creators online. 

    If that's your case, please fill in this form to request your registration.

    KVIFF Industry Days Programme

    We're also happy to share with you our Industry Days programme, full of discussions on the current film industry issues as usual! This year, we will treat you to an insightful talk on conscious leadership, organised together with Sane Cinema, APA and ACE Producers, a debate on the legal and ethic aspects of using AI in film and series development, streamers' panel on the current development opportunities in Central Europe or a masterclass with a very special industry guest TBA.

    The Film Industry Office will be in touch with you with further information in case the access is granted.

    Looking forward to meeting you and celebrating films together in Karlovy Vary!

    Hugo Rosák & the KVIFF Film Industry Office
