Twenty-two film projects from 14 countries will be presented at the ninth edition of When East Meets West (WEMW), the Italian co-production forum taking place from 20-22 January 2019 as an integral part of the Trieste Film Festival. This year, WEMW will bring together more than 450 industry professionals from over 35 countries, particularly from the 2019 East & West spotlight territories: Central Eastern Europe (the Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia and Ukraine) and Benelux (Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands).

The 22 feature-length projects in development – 11 fiction films and 11 documentaries – were selected from among 299 submissions from 49 countries. The final selection will include several debut features, such as Methusalem by Floor van der Meulen (the EFA winner 9 Days – From My Window in Aleppo) and Victim by Michal Blasko (Atlantis, 2003, premiered in the Cinéfondation competition at the 70th Cannes Film Festival), but also upcoming films by Vuk Ršumović (No One's Child [+lire aussi :

“Once again, we would like to thank all of the applicants who shared their stories with us. And now, as at all past editions, we will do our best to carefully help our selected projects to find the right partners amongst all our invited guests,” said Alessandro Gropplero, head of WEMW.

Along with the Film Center Serbia Development Award (a cash prize of €5,000), the EAVE European Producers Workshop scholarship, the Cannes Producers Network Prize, the Flow Postproduction Award (€15,000 in post-production services) and the European Women’s Audiovisual Network Award, a cash prize for the best female director, all fiction projects will be competing for one brand-new trophy: the Pop Up Film Residency Award, a three-week residency with the guidance of international mentors.

In addition to the 22 projects selected for the pitching forum, WEMW will invite two additional guest projects previously presented at Baltic Event and DOCSP Brazil.

Together with the showcase of projects in development, the programme of When East Meets West 2019 will include the Last Stop Trieste work-in-progress section for documentaries, the First Cut Lab workshop for long feature fiction films at the editing stage, the This is IT work-in-progress section for movies produced or co-produced by Italian companies, and a rich programme dedicated to co-production opportunities with the 2019 spotlight territories.

WEMW will be organised once again next year by the FVG Audiovisual Fund in conjunction with the Trieste Film Festival, and thanks to the constant support of the Creative Europe MEDIA programme, the Direzione Generale per il Cinema - MiBAC and CEI – Central European Initiative.
