Main topics of the Festival Identity 2020:

1) Film Festival’s Code of ethics and its funding - What moral and ethical dilemmas do film festivals face when securing funding? What is the responsibility of festivals when partnering with funders backed by political, economical or environmental resources? Should film festivals be the ones to set norms and change paradigm?

2) Models of Hybrid Film Festivals – The pandemic turned the world upside down and film festivals, too, had to adapt to the new reality. Major events went online, were cancelled or postponed. Others found a different path, reinvented themselves, and new festival formats are emerging. Will the pandemic change film festivals forever, for worse or better, and what are the lessons learned?

3) What is beyond the film realm? – Apart from audiovisual experience, film festivals have much wider implications – opening important discussions, educating, encouraging and activating people. Do film festivals reflect on this broader role and impact they have? Should film festival actively work towards positive social change?
