Directors Hub

FEST introduced in 2019 the Director’s Hub, a new platform to further expand networking opportunities and create a meaningful exchange of knowledge, tailored for filmmakers and other industry professionals, available only with a FEST PRO badge.


Throughout one day, the Hub will host three interactive sessions with several speakers discussing their experiences on defining topics and debating them with peers and attendees.


The Program tackles a scope of issues concerning film directing through a series of debates, roundtable discussions, and case studies focused on the director’s role, tasks, relationships, expectations, obstacles, and challenges they have to face, both locally and internationally.

Last year's edition featured directors like André Gil Mata, Miguel Gonçalves Mendes, Jack Turits, Antoine Russbach, Aga Woszcynska, and Sahad Ameen.

The Directors' Hub program will soon announce the dates of the 2023 edition.



Access is limited to the FEST PRO accreditation holders.
