Trieste – November 2-5, 2022

The Fantastic Film Forum is the section of the Trieste Science+Fiction Festival dedicated to film professionals.

The 2022 edition will be held in a hybrid format. All in-person events will take place at DoubleTree by Hilton Trieste (Piazza della Repubblica 1, Trieste). The programme spans the four central days of the festival and offers a high-profile schedule of meetings, networking events and workshops. A carefully reasoned and consistent programme, designed to provide an insight into the best opportunities and tools to develop, finance and sell your project, and particularly to favour the exchange of experiences and contacts. Some of the main events: the workshops, focusing this year on sales strategies for the international market; the by now traditional Science Doc Day, focusing on green film production; and the one-to-one meetings, taking place this year in two separate sessions, online and in person.

All events will take place in English
