ACE Seminar

Film incentives in Europe

“Over the past years, most European countries have developed mechanisms to incite producers to come and shoot or post-produce their films in their respective territories. Generally, tax credits or other measures that aim to reimburse the producer for a part of the funds spent in the country are put in place. Which ones are the most beneficial to the producer? Is it necessary to have a local co-producer or a local partner ? Must the film pass a national culture test? 90 minutes with a panel of speakers originating from several different European countries to constitute an assessment of this new European Eldorado.”

The debate will be moderated by Ronan Girre, ACE.

> Panelists : Titus Kreyenberg (Unafilm), Anthony Muir (Film I Väst) & David Collins (Samson Films)

Monday, July 4 from 5 to 7Pm / BnF - Site François Mitterand (Petit Auditorium) – In English

Producing independent films today: creativity is required!

In the context of an industry with fast changing rules, Lucie Kalmar (Festival Scope, Mômerade, after a 7-year experience at Wild Bunch) and Jean des Forêts (Petit Film, formerly at Les Films du Requin), who spent the first ten years of their professional career working on films they love, will share ideas on how to continue to do so.

The workshop will include a case study of a micro-budget independent American film: ‘Putty Hill’, produced, promoted and sold from Paris by Jordan Mintzer.

> Panelists : Lucie Kalmar (Mômerade/Festival Scope), Jean des Forêts (Petit Film) & Jordan Mintzer
