MIDPOINT to lead a discussion panel about new EU directive of the copyright law

In the frame of MIDPOINT Feature Launch activities within the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, a discussion panel “Copyright and Scriptwriting: Getting It Right” will be held. 

In March 2019, the new directive of the copyright law approved by the European Parliament and to be implemented in all countries in the European Union in the next 24 months, the legal framework, upon which European writers operate, will change. Will they be ready? Do supporting organizations and bodies, such as writers’ unions or guilds, exist and function in Eastern Europe? Can these writers make a career internationally and what is the role of a talent agent in this closely intertwined ecosystem? MIDPOINT, as a leading training platform for fiction writers, will guide this pressing discussion with representatives of writers’ guilds, talent agencies, and local professionals.

WHEN AND WHERE: July 2 / 10 am / Hotel Thermal, 
Industry Pool
 

The panel is open to all guests with industry accreditation.
