23rd Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
Co-Production of Documentary Films Between Israel and the Czech Republic
The Czech Republic and Israel signed a new bilateral agreement on film co-production in 2017. With the signing of the agreement, new possibilities of future co-operation on film projects have opened. Noemi Schory, director, and producer of documentary films will present the possibilities of the new joint Czech-Israeli cooperation on projects, from both the financial and thematic perspectives, at a meeting organised by the Czech Audiovisual Producers Association (APA). Although public financing in Israel is limited, many films which enjoyed worldwide success have been produced thanks to international co-productions. Noemi Schory will present her own experience with international co-productions of documentaries. This event builds on presentations organised by APA and Czech Film Fund at IFF Karlovy Vary and IFF Haifa earlier this year.
