A PROMOTIONAL AND EDUCATIONAL PROJECT WHICH BROUGHT TOGETHER TALENTED DOCUMENTARY FILM PRODUCERS FROM EU COUNTRIES
The main objective of the workshop is to interconnect talented European producers with film professionals, especially those working in documentary cinematography. We believe that such project can open a discussion about current European production system, its efficiency and limits, and perhaps contribute to identify its unused or yet undiscovered possibilities.
The project should also provided the participants with an easy access to information in the field of audiovision, deeper and wider orientation in the film market but also helped them establish contacts with producers from other countries, and thus increase the potential of future European coproduction projects.
The Emerging Producers project is realized in cooperation with MEDIA Desks in Austria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Latvia, Malta, Poland, Slovenia, Slovakia, Switzerland and MEDIA Antenna Barcelona.
EMERGING PRODUCERS 2014 / 2nd edition / October 23-27, 2013 / Jihlava IDFF
REGISTRATION DEADLINE / April 30, 2013
WORKING LANGUAGE / English without interpreting
The programme is divided into three main parts:
Promotion | Various levels of presentation of EP (Evening Show presentation, Meeting with established European producers, Lunch with festival directors etc.)
Networking |Making quick and easy contact with the VIPs of the documentary film industry community (One-to-One meetings, practical attendance at other industry events etc.)
Navigation | Getting oriented in European film industry and institutions (via master classes, case studies and lecteurs)
The programme includes a personal presentation of the producers as well as an official presentation to film professionals and press. The Emerging Producers project is accompanied by a special catalogue including photographs, CVs, motivation texts and basic information concerning each of the producers.
A fundamental part of the EP programme consists in various forms of informal meetings where people get to know each other and gain easy access to contacts for future international co-operations unlike in official negotiations and e-mail correspondence. However, we are particular about the fact that even the informal meetings have a specific form with a reasonable purpose to fulfil the networking aim.
The individual meetings are planned for carefully selected specific circles of professionals. The aim is to help the producers meet all the important persons in the field of audio-vision present at the Industry Programme in the course of the project. For a higher efficiency of the individual meetings, a great emphasis is placed on the seating plan. This will increase the efficiency of the event and will prevent the clustering of people from the same regions who already know each other.
In today’s times of rapid technological development and an expanding film market, it is often very hard for a beginning producer to get oriented on the film market and understand how the whole mechanism works. It may take several years for a talented producer to meet the right group of people where he or she can start co-operating, financing and producing his or her films.
The Jihlava Industry Programme is conceived so as to represent a real entrance gate to the film industry with a focus on creative documentary film and its forms overlapping with fiction film and various reality TV formats. It also focuses on the essential branches in the field of distribution and film sales with the aim of making the producers’ way to the desired results easier.
In today’s times of rapid technological development and an expanding film market, it is often very hard for a beginning producer to get oriented on the film market and understand its mechanisms. The individual parts of the EP programme create an information cluster to help a beginning European producer get oriented on the market.

The Emerging Producers Program of IDFF Jihlava 2012 had been designed to provide a group of talented producers with all possible means of presenting themselves, their work, vision and ideas. One part of the Emerging Producers workshop programme was a public presentation delivered by the participants.
Each producer had been given 6 minutes slot to deliver short presentation of his or her professional profile, and also to introduce themselves in a more personal way. With a help of audiovisual projections, they had been able to use their favorite films, books, music, images or even their dreams as tools to tell the audience as much as possible about themselves and their work.
