At the event, Ji.hlava’s director Marek Hovorka and the festival’s head of industry Jarmila Outratová announced an open call for the next, 12th edition of the EMERGING PRODUCERS programme. The deadline for applications is March 31. Seventeen selected European producers will be accompanied by one producer from the next edition’s guest country – The Philippines, in partnership with the Film Development Council of the Philippines.

The EMERGING PRODUCERS programme is a respected educational, promotional and networking programme curated by the Ji.hlava IDFF. It includes workshops in Jihlava (October 2023) and Berlin (February 2024), as well as support to the selected producers throughout the year.
