The Festival has organized this prestigious event since 2009 in order to facilitate an opportunity for discussion and debate about independent production in Europe. The guests of the Forum are a selection of young European independent producers who, through their productions, made the short list of “Producers on the Move” of the EFP at the last Cannes Film Festival.
The European “Producers on the Move” will be: Italian Marta Donzelli (Vivo Film), Polish Lukasz Dzieciol (Opus Film), producer of “Courage” by G. Zglinski winner in 2011 of the Special Jury Prize at the Warsaw Film Festival; for the Czech Republic, Radim Prochazka (Produkce Radim Prochàzka s.r.o.), producer of the visionary documentary “Obscurantist and His Lineage” by K. Vachek; from Iceland Hlin Johannesdottir (Zik Zak Filmworks), producter of “Volcano” by R.

Stærmose, winner at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival for Best Soundtrack.
