Participants: producers José Alayón (El Viaje Films, with titles such as Slimane and Nueva isla), Maider Idiazabal (Doxa Producciones, with feature films, such as Asier ETA biok and Who is Ingrid Bergman?), Sergi Moreno (Lastor Media, with films like 10.000km and Bajarí); and Amaia Remírez (Kanaki Films, with projects, such as Another day of life and the short film, Minerita) will participate in the talk. The meeting will be moderated by Josetxo Cerdán (member of the Coordination Committee of the Filmmakers Union).
The meeting, organised in conjunction with the Filmmakers Union, will bring together diverse producers to analyse the new production models that are being applied in order to ensure the viability of independent cinematographic projects. The round table will pay special attention to the new factors in the equation: from the role of training centres to that of festivals. Although the current times do not invite much optimism, the experiences of the participants can draw new routes for the production and funding of Spanish film.
The Filmmakers Union came about in 2014 in response to the concern of a group of film, culture and teaching professionals about the critical moment that film in Spain is facing and with the objective of reclaiming and repositioning it as an essential cultural element in the society of the 21st century. The main points in its programme are education, exhibition and proportionality.
Entry is free of charge after picking a ticket in the information point of the festival in the hall of Baluarte.
