A privileged opportunity to meet authors, actors and film professionals from all over, to freely discuss issues with critics, experts and field specialists.
The intense work of research and promotion, together with the intention of experimenting and exploring cinematographic and cultural spheres in general, has led the festival to become a symbolic bridge that keeps on putting into contact with the diverse latitudes of European cinema.
The festival hosts its traditional section on female filmmakers hailing from a specific Central and Eastern European country. As such, after Poland, Georgia and Ukraine’s turn, in 2024 a selection – curated by the Berlinale’s executive director Mariëtte Rissenbeek – of contemporary Germany’s most interesting filmmaking approaches is set for the showcase.
Trieste Film Festival's co-production forum, When East Meets West (WEMW), is well-known in the region for showcasing established as well as emerging directors and gathering on-site over 500 decision-makers and industry professionals from around the globe.
