EFP (European Film Promotion) has announced the selection for the sixth edition of Future Frames – Generation NEXT of European Cinema. The initiative will be presenting ten selected films directed by some of the most promising European film students and graduates at this year's KVIFF Eastern Promises Industry Days, the only section of the 55th Karlovy Vary International Film Festival taking place as usual after its cancellation due to the pandemic. The initiative's programme, which has been expanded by several kick-off events, will be running online, in collaboration with Festival Scope Pro, from 29 June to 8 July.
"Usually, the filmmakers, who are nominated by their countries‘ national film promotion institutes and finally selected by KVIFF’s artistic director Karel Och and programme coordinator Anna Purkrabkova, can’t wait for the first public screenings of their first films and are curious to see the audience’s reactions. This year, the focus has shifted. Now it’s all about the reactions of the the industry and press. However, in these challenging times, it’s a great opportunity for these exceptional young filmmakers to get to know and understand the professional industry much better“, says EFP’s Managing Director Sonja Heinen.
"Cancelling the 55th edition in 2020 and postponing it to 2021 was a tough decision, but we thought it was cleaner and, in the longer run, more in tune with the KVIFF's DNA. Nevertheless, not even such challenging times will stop us from being keen on supporting filmmakers, so we are glad that we joined forces with our traditional partner European Film Promotion, having chance to bring an extraordinarily strong selection of young and promising European directors along with their films“, says KVIFF's artistic director Karel Och.
