At 12.30 h & at 16 h

Professional Meetings have been organized for 4 years within the framework of the FICME 2020, which is held in different towns on the island from July 13 to 18. These free sessions constitute a space destined to create synergies between different professionals within the Balearic audiovisual sector as well as on the national and international extents.

1. Film Festivals Professional Meeting

The first part will focus on the already traditional meeting of Balearic, national and international festivals, in order to establish networks, unite and find collaboration between them

Considering that working together is key, a new web tool will be introduced in this first part of the conference. This tool could be proved to be essential for collaborative work among festivals, entities and private companies; it was created with the intention of collecting all the information regarding the Balearic festivals: calls, job offers, parallel activities, etc. A useful and practical device for both organizers, creators and other agents in the sector. 

WE WANT TO KNOW,

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

2. Professional Meeting – Other distribution formulas

The second part will focus on distribution. On the one hand, it aims to offer professionals a space to share knowledge and establish the necessary contacts for the promotion and circulation of their projects, and on the other hand, to create a benchmark in the Balearic audiovisual industry in Menorca to promote Balearic cinema in all its formats.

We will analyze and present first-hand other distribution formulas in order to open and facilitate the channels that our industry requires. We cannot ignore the crisis we are experiencing worldwide caused by Covidien-19, because of it we will open a round table moderated by a successful professional who will explain us what paths will be followed from now on regarding film distribution.

Presents: LLUÍS MARQUÈS & OLIVIA DELCÁN

The great summits of gastronomy, like everything in life, are the fruit of mixing, fusion, combination of flavours, styles, techniques, ingredients … which in many cases become new traditions and classics in themselves. The Remixers is an irrefutable proof of this, based on merging the Colombo brother’s North Italian cuisine with the most superb tradition of grilled and seafood cuisine from the Basque Country. The first episode of this series project is a story filled with epic, funk, delicious dishes and great editing and soundtrack.
