Festival Identity

Festival Identity is a Ji.hlava IDFF’s platform for representatives of film festivals that aims at strengthening collaboration among film festivals, encouraging know-how exchange, and building the film festivals' community. Participation in the Festival Identity programme is the most convenient and effective way for film festivals to be part of Ji.hlava IDFF. The participation fee includes a specially designed workshop, accreditation as well as accommodation.

Festival Identity

The collaboration among film festivals is often inspired and driven by various grant schemes. At the same time, the film industry often accentuates competitiveness. We would like to search for sustainable ways how to collaborate effectively as we believe that together we are stronger.

The Festival Identity workshop will take place on Wednesday, October 25, and we recommend staying for three nights at Ji.hlava (with arrivals on October 24 or October 25 morning).

The participation fee is 300 EUR and it includes industry accreditation for a representative of your festival and three nights of accommodation. The accreditation gives participants full access to the festival screenings as well as to the entire industry program which includes masterclasses, presentations, discussions, Ji.hlava New Visions Forum & Market, Matchmaking Accelerator and more. The festival representatives will be invited to the presentation of new Czech documentary films (Czech Joy in the Spotlight) as well as to meeting with 19 up-and-coming European documentary film producers. Travel arrangements are not secured by the festival.

The participants of the Festival Identity are traditionally invited to be the jurors of the Best Festival Poster Competition.

You can register here* until September 30, 2023.
