The Ji.hlava Film Festival has launched New Visions Forum and Market, a financing, co-production and networking event. The program will present 16 new documentary projects by U.S. filmmakers to the more than 1,000 film professionals who are expected to take part in the festival physically and online.

The director-producer pair behind the projects will be pitching to potential co-producers, distributors, sales representatives and film festivals from Europe. The projects, in all stages of production, will be presented along with a preview of the film. The filmmakers taking part include Godfrey Reggio, Sara Dosa, Fern Silva and Brent Chesanek.

The New Visions Forum and Market will take place physically at the Ji.hlava Industry Hub and will be streamed online to the holders of industry accreditation. It will take place on Oct. 28-29.
