Trieste, October 27 – November 3, 2021
The Fantastic Film Forum is the section of the Trieste Science+Fiction Festival dedicated to cinema professionals.
The 2021 edition will be completely online. The program has been prolonged to eight days, and will cover the whole festival, with a calendar filled with specialistic meetings, networking events and workshops. A structured and coherent program, studied to explore the opportunities and the tools to develop, fund and sell a project. Among the flagship events: the high level vocational training workshops, that this year have been raised to three; the Co-production Day, dedicated to the opportunities and modes of international co-production; and the second edition of the Science Doc Day, a whole day dedicated to the scientific documentary.
As in the past years, the 2021 edition of the Fantastic Film Forum will focus on the development and distribution of films, with a particular attention to the internationalisation of the project.
All events will take place online and in English.
