Today, the 19th edition of Industry@Tallinn & Baltic Event, taking place virtually this year, kicks off with its online programme including over 50 workshops, panels and seminars, hundreds of 1:1 meetings, and more than 800 accredited film industry professionals.
According to Marge Liiske, Head of Industry@Tallinn & Baltic Event, the record number of people interested in the event has pushed the team to put together an exhaustive programme with business, networking and learning elements. “2020 has forced also festivals and film markets to experiment and find new ways to operate. The models used until now are no longer effective, yet we still need to build fruitful business relationships, even if only online. In order to cope with changes, professionals need to have a good foresight about the future - what competencies and skills are needed, what kind of films to develop and produce, etc. Be informed, listen to the audiences, learn from your fellow professionals, analyse the course of history, and make it your own. And not only that - be kind, be attentive, connect with people - it is the key to the survival. We are giving only some of the tools that help you to move forward, as our colleagues from other film industry events have and will give theirs, so keep informed. ”
