9th IN THE PALACE International Short Film Festival, Balchik, 2011THE FILM INDUSTRY MARKET has its own three-day (22nd -24th June) event during the festival.

This event will presents institutions and organizations engaged in financing, production and distribution of film projects or related services.

The industry section we have developed through the years follows the objectives of supporting and promoting the short film genre. Recently we have accumulated activities, organizational practices and targeted connections that have gradually laid the foundations of our market. That's why this year for the first time the market will run as an independent event as part of the whole project.

We have combined our experience and approach with the framework and know-how of the SEE Cinema Network to offer a targeted meeting place for short film makers from the region and all over the Europe, giving them the opportunity to get to know other professionals, to trade, and to move their projects forward.

The Industry Market is created in partnership with the South-East European Cinema Network (SEE Cinema Network) and includes four main modules:

  • Pitching sessions of rough cut projects
  • Educational activities: master classes, lectures, discussions, sessions, debates, etc.
  • Film Market consists of: industry market zone, finished film market, info meetings, presentations, etc.
  • Video Library of short films and a database of filmmakers, decision makers, festivals, broadcasters (on-line industry guide).
