Film Europe initially set up its own week-long festival, Be2Can (see the news), held in cinemas across Slovakia and the Czech Republic, in order to introduce its acquisitions. Subsequently, new films found their way onto a whole host of Film Europe’s other outlets, such as VoD, the Film Europe Channel, available in the Netherlands and Belgium, the Festival Channel, accessible in Slovakia and the Czech Republic, and its very own DVD label, as well as partner festivals.

Those will be still used; however, Film Europe is now introducing a new strategy, dubbed Be2Can Nonstop. The week-long Be2Can festival remains the company’s annual fixture, although the “season” will start in June, right after the Cannes Film Festival, and last until the following May, wrapping up shortly before the new edition of Cannes flings open its doors. Film Europe’s CEO, Ivan Hronec, explains, “The Be2Can concept is not changing; we are merely extending its reach.” This change in strategy is another stage in Film Europe’s expansion, after it ceased to focus its scope exclusively on European productions. “Be2Can films should give rise to a variety of responses, diverse trains of thought and perceptions, leading to a sharing of impressions and constant comparisons,” adds Hronec.

The recent line-up of films that the company will be releasing in theatres at the annual Be2Can gathering in September and October comprises 3 Days in Quiberon [+lire aussi :
