Programme 2019

WEMW 2019 will be held at Starhotels Savoia – Riva del Mandracchio 4, Trieste from 20th to 22nd January 2019.

The programme will include different actions:
Producers from all European territories, Canada, USA and Latin America will be eligible to apply and 20 long feature fiction films or documentaries in development will be presented to a large panel of decision makers and financiers. Along with the pitching and the pre-arranged individual meetings, the forum will include a rich programme of panels and case studies dedicated to the co-production opportunities with the countries in focus.

Workshop designed for 3 long feature fiction films in editing phase from Eastern Europe and Italy. Selected producer/director teams will receive tailor-made advice from a consulting editor and expert feedback from top international film professionals (creative producers, festival programmers, sales agents, etc). The main goal is to foster the artistic potential of selected rough cuts and, at the same time, increase the sales, festival and circulation potential of completed films.

Work in progress section for documentary projects from Eastern Europe and Italy. Last Stop Trieste will present documentaries in advanced editing stage previously developed either at Ex-Oriente Film, BDC Discoveries by Balkan Documentary Center, Docu Rough Cut Boutique in Sarajevo or presented at the previous editions of Baltic Sea Forum, ZagrebDox PRO and When East Meets West.

The brand new work in progress section for long feature fiction films with Italian majority or minority co-producers. The main goal is to offer a dual opportunity to all Italian producers, fostering their chances to attract distribution partners on a domestic and international level.

WEMW is organized by the FVG Audiovisual Fund and the Trieste Film Festival in collaboration with EAVE, Maia Workshops, Creative Europe Desk Italy, EURIMAGES, and the support of Creative Europe/MEDIA Programme, MiBAC – Direzione Centrale per il Cinema, CEI – Central European Initiative and the Autonomous Region of Friuli Venezia Giulia.
