Syllas Tzoumerkas to be mentor for the 2019 Future Frames
- The Greek director will be at Karlovy Vary to give advice to the up-and-coming directors on how best to step out into the international film industry
EFP (European Film Promotion) and the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival (KVIFF) have announced that the acclaimed Greek director Syllas Tzoumerkas will be this year's mentor for EFP Future Frames - Generation NEXT of European Cinema at KVIFF from 30 June to 3 July. In an exclusive master class entitled "A Very Certain Defiance", he will give advice to the up-and-coming directors on how best to step out into the international film industry. Tzoumerkas' involvement is part of an intensive programme introducing the emerging professionals to the film industry and media as well as presenting their work to the festival audience. The initiative is supported by the Creative Europe - Media Programme and the respective EFP member organisations.
Tzoumerkas, who will present his visually compelling psychological drama The Miracle of the Sargasso Sea [+see also:

Furthermore, once again this year, the EFP Future Frames trailer premieres here on Cineuropa:
