Funding a short film isn't peanuts. Alternative ways of funding your film are becoming more and more common. In the morning the Dutch platform 'De Ontmoeting' will present themselves and the five projects they are helping to get realized at the moment. After this Lisa Linde Nieveld from EYE International will talk about how they contribute to Dutch filmmakers to get their short films seen abroad.
In the Netherlands there are only a certain amount of possibilities to realize a short film and get funding for it, so looking abroad could help your film get to the next level. What does Europe have to offer for script development or markets and platforms to pitch your film and find suitable co-production partners? And is this valuable for a short film or does it mainly cost a lot of work? What can you get from this? Wim Vanacker from the European Short Pitch, Nele Luise Fritzsche from Script Pitch and Interforum, Julie Rousson from Euro Connection, Zuzana Kaliska from Torino Film Lab and producer Ben Vandendaele will shed their light on these questions and more.
Una Gunjak - The Chicken The Chicken is one of the success stories of how you can go through pitching and end up with a great film. The script was first pitched at European Short Pitch, was co-produced between Croatia and Germany, won The Film Prize for International Cooperation from the Robert Bosch Stiftung and ended up premiering at Cannes. After that it got selected at more than 150 festivals, won the European Film Award for Best European Short Film and got shortlisted for the Oscars.
During lunch we will set up one-on-one meetings with guests from the film industry. You can join them at their table for a short and private conversation and ask them all of your questions.
The last year there has been a rise in online platforms that are producing their own content. What challenges and possibilities does this bring to the front? What is the strategy behind these productions, how does the distribution work and the production phase? The panel will include Karen van Dijk (VPRO Dorst), Mea Dols de Jong (Mindshakes), Gwen Pol (Vice) and Jos de Putter (de Correspondent).
On the 1st of May in 2016 the VAR will disappear. Instead of VAR, clients and contractors can use agreements set up or approved by the tax authorities. What do these changes mean for independent film and television makers? A presentation by the Dutch Association of Film and TV professionals (NBF).
During this hour we’ll have a talk with Dutch talent Mees Peijnenburg and Swedish director Patrik Eklund. Eklund has been a succesful director for a number of years now, and returned to short film after his feature Flimmer. Peijnenburg on the other hand is just working towards his first feature, also after having a number of succesful short films. What do they like about the short format and what have they gained from the festival lifes of their films.
International festival programmers will discuss what they are looking for in a short film and what it means to be screened at a film festival. What should you keep in mind when you send your film to festivals and what do programmers pay attention to when selecting a film? The panel includes Maike Mia Höhne (Berlinale Shorts), Philip Ilson (BFI London Film Festival, London Short Film Festival), Daniel Karolewicz (Festival du Nouveau Cinéma Montréal) and Enrico Vannucci (Venice Film Festival).
Founding a production company is both exciting and challenging. What problems do starting producers face? Erik Glijnis graduated at the Dutch Film Academy with the praised film Onno the Oblivious and is now at the start of his career. He will talk about the challenges this brings. The talk will be led by Frank Hoeve, producer and owner of Baldr Film.
How will your film change the world? Apart from knowing what your film is about exactly, today you also need to think about what kind of impact you want your film to make.

A workshop by Bernadette Kuiper, impact producer and co-founder of the Impact Academy.
