Organizers have developed an algorithm to help participants navigating KMW CoProduction Meetings program and set priorities for each day of the event
We remind you that this year KMW CoProduction Meetings 2019 will be held in the new format. The event will last for two days. The first day will be dedicated to the current state and prospects of development of co-production in Ukraine, the second — to the face-to-face meetings of Ukrainian and foreign producers.
So what Ukrainian producers should focus on to optimize their work at KMW CoProduction Meetings 2019 and best benefit from the event? Here's a checklist of key moments.
- Get familiar with the current needs and priorities of potential foreign partners to understand how you can help each other, now or in the future. You will have this opportunity on the first day of the event during the presentation of projects by international producers who are interested in cooperation with Ukraine.
- Participate in a panel discussion which will follow the presentation. It will give you understanding of technical, legal, financial and other issues of international cooperation, the solution of which will encourage foreign producers to actively seek for partnership with Ukrainian colleagues.
- Join a networking session that will conclude the first day of the event. This is a great opportunity to communicate and set up contacts with both foreign and Ukrainian colleagues.
- Participate in face-to-face meetings with potential international partners on the second day of the event. This is not only an opportunity to get an evaluation of the international potential of your projects from experienced foreign producers, but also a chance to establish personal contacts with them. That is you work for the future: even if you don't find foreign support for your current project immediately, you will establish relationships with foreign producers for further cooperation.
