Dag van het Filmberoep - Deel 2

The annual ‘Dag van het Filmberoep’ is an important gathering of professionals from the industry. During the day, various topics will be discussed about what is brewing in the Flemish landscape.

The afternoon programme starts in the Film Fest Café where Humbug and Fantômas – two brand new film magazines – launch their very first print issue. A perfect moment to allow the initiators to discuss the state of film criticism in Flanders, with among others, Ronald Rovers – the editor-in chief of the Dutch magazine ‘Filmkrant’.

After that, Film Fest Ghent will organize two panel talks in collaboration with the Flemish Directors Guild. During a 'Directors Roundtable' Flemish fiction directors discuss their work experience abroad. This is followed by a panel debate with the key players from our audiovisual sector: broadcasters, streamers, media players, funds, distributors and producers. Together with VRT, SBS, VTM/DPG Media, Streamz, VAF, KFD and VOFTP, they examine following questions: What is the place and future of local author-driven productions with films and high-quality high-end series in a globalizing audiovisual sector? And how do our media players, streamers, broadcasters and distributors relate to our local independent author-driven productions, authors, and creators themselves?
