Europa Distribution Heads to Karlovy Vary

Independent distributor network and lobby group Europa Distribution will hold its second annual conference at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival, which kicked off Friday.

Some 40 distributors will come together for the conference, which takes place during the fest from July 3-7. In addition to attending the organization’s general assembly, distribs will take part in panels, workshops and round-tables revolving around leading issues facing European distribution. 

This year’s event will focus on film education and the development of young audiences.

The network, along with the Karlovy Vary Film Festival, the LUX Film Prize and Creative Europe Desk Muenchen, has organized a panel discussion on July 4 focusing on film education in Europe. Moderated by SampoMedia’s Michael Gubbins, the event will include a keynote speech by European Parliament member Bogdan Wenta and an address by LUX Film Prize coordinator Doris Pack. 

In addition, Europa Distribution will meet with the European Film Agency Directors (EFAD) group at a common session to further discuss film education with representatives from various European film agencies in an effort to find common strategies to foster European film culture amongst children in school.

Europa Distribution, which was created in 2006, comprises more than 140 leading independent distributors representing 28 countries in Europe and beyond.
