Overview

Our Industry Days are the go-to place for professionals that are looking for business opportunities and who wish to enhance their knowledge and networking area.

For the 16th edition of FEST, in view of the current reality due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and with the safety and health of our participants and guests being our top priority, our Industry Program will not be happening in its usual format.

Postponed for next year's edition are our Training Ground, Directors Hub, Industry Meetings, Filmmakers Corner, Networking Dinners, and other networking activities that demand a close physical contact, strongly ill-advised in these times. 

FEST - Pitching Forum will be held online, in a different format. Find out everything here.

Non the less, our highly expected Industry Days are back next year, stronger than ever with the sections that we invite you to discover: 

And other networking activities.

Programs of previous years include names such as Asghar Farhadi, Béla Tarr, Melissa Leo, Ritesh Batra, Fernando Trueba, Allan Starski, Christopher Hampton, Roman Coppola, Finola Dwyer, Stephen Warbeck and Stuart Dryburgh.

Last year alone our guests included Ritesh Batra, Manuel Alberto Claro, Gareth Wiley and Stuart Dryburgh.

In anticipation for 2021, you can discover our last year's industry program here.
