• After the success of the first edition, with more than 130 attending delegates and around 1,050 participants in all the activities, Gijon IFF hosts a new edition of its Industry Days with the support, as co-producer, of the Asturian Public Film Commission.
• One of the main novelties of this second edition is the collaboration with Torino Short Film Market with the creation of a common workspace called BE SHORT NOW!

• The FICX Industry Days will feature a number of panel discussions in which we will address subjects such as Intellectual Property in cinema, what to sign and not to sign as a screenwriter, how to find the best match for selling and distributing films and the relationship between festivals and their audience through programming.

• During the four-day event we will host a new edition of the PUSH PLAY Work-in-Progress Session showcasing five Spanish (co)productions in the making. And again this year, the programme will include a pitching session of the six film projects in development that participated earlier in the year in the 6th Script-writing Lab by SGAE Foundation.

For the second time, the Gijon International Film Festival and Laboral Cinemateca Film Commission organise a series of activities aimed at film professionals within the framework of the FICX Industry Days. On this occasion, the event will take place from Monday 19 to Thursday 22 November.

This programme is aimed at Asturian, Spanish and international professionals and its main goal is to create a space for the discussion of current issues within the sector, offering the chance to acquire relevant information for the development and the funding of projects, giving more visibility to local and national cinema within the Festival’s structure, and also creating a positive atmosphere in favour of networking.

A common workspace of exchange between FICX and Torino Short Film Market

BE SHORT NOW! is a series of industry meetings and panels focusing on short films created by Torino Short Film Market (Italy) and Gijón International Film Festival (Spain). Our two events, taking place almost simultaneously, share the same goal to dig inside the world of short films and bring into light different aspects of the current short film industry.

For this first year we decided to organize two events. The first one takes place in Gijón on November 21st and is called FESTIVALS: The films, the audience. In a panel discussion format, we will explore the role of the films’ selectors, curators & programmers in relation with the audience (how to reach, how to entertain, how to educate, how to grow and how not to lose an audience). The panel will be kicked off by a video intro of Massimiliano Nardulli Programmer of the Torino Short Film Market. Additionally, it features Jukka Pekka Laakso (Director of Tampere Film Festival, Finland), Vanesa Fernández (Director of ZINEBI, Spain), Stefan Ivančić (Short Film Programmer of Locarno Film Festival, Switzerland) and Bianca Lucas (Short Film Programmer Sarajevo International Film Festival, Bosnia-Herzegovina).

The second event (also in a panel discussion format) will be held in Torino on November 24th under the title of THE USUAL SUSPECTS? An honest and amusing discussion on serious matters about programming choices in the (Short) Film Festival Circuit. This panel will be moderated by Enrico Vannucci (Curator of TSFM and Venice Film Festival) and it features Daniel Ebner (Artistic director of VIS Vienna Shorts, Austria), Anne Gaschütz (Coordinator of Filmfest Dresden, Germany), Rich Warren (Festival Director of Encounters, UK) and Massimiliano Nardulli.

Talks, presentations, panel discussion, work-in-progress and projects in development

The FICX Industry Days will kick off on November 19 with An approach to Intellectual Property in cinema, a talk where the lawyers of the Visual InLaw firm will tell us about the most important elements related to Intellectual Property from the producer and the author’s perspective, with special emphasis on the most relevant points, such as contracting and the transfer of rights that it entails. They will present different paradigmatic cases with the support of the speakers Germán Bercovitz (Professor of Civil Law) and producer Diego Rodríguez (La Charito Films).

Later on, Toni Oliete (Head of Sales at Film Factory Entertainment and Professor at the Master’s Degree in Audiovisual Distribution at ECAM) will moderate the panel discussion Sales and distribution: How to find the best match, with the collaboration of Susana Santos Rodrigues (VAIVEM), Ferran Herranz (La Aventura Audiovisual) and Carlos Ríos (Noucinemart), among others. This panel is organised in collaboration with ECAM.

The first day of the programme will round-up with an informative session by Sergio García de Leaniz (project manager), who will explain the eligibility criteria for co-productions in Eurimages, and Pablo Pérez de Lema (Head of the Department of Promotion and International Relations at ICAA – the Spanish Institute of Cinematography and Audiovisual Arts), who will talk about the success factors in this programme, the common mistakes to be avoided and the key to submitting an eligible project.

On November 20 will take place the presentation of La Incubadora by The Screen, a programme focused on the development of film features, promoted by ECAM, and aimed at emerging producers, directors and screenwriters from Spain. It consists of mentoring, individual advice, workshops and funding of five feature film projects with international potential. This presentation will be conducted by Gemma Vidal (La Incubadora Coordinator and programme manager) and Jaime Gona, producer of El Profesor (Gonita Films), project that participated in the first edition of the programme.

Also on November 20, we will host the second edition of the PUSH PLAY Work-in-Progress Session with the presentation of five Spanish (co)productions in pre-editing, editing or post-production phase. These projects are: Les perseides (Boogaloo Films) presented by Alberto Dexeus and Ànnia Gabarró (directors); Blanco en blanco (El Viaje Films/Don Quijote Films) presented by Théo Court (director) and José Alayón (Producer); Arima (Esnatu Zinema) presented by Jaione Camborda (director and producer); Niño de Elche (Señor y Señora/ Código Sur) presented by Marc Sempere (co-director) and Maider Fernández (Production); and Pacífico Sur (Chester Media Producciones) presented by Inés Paz and Marta Mira (directors, screenwriters and producers).

The selected projects are eligible for the DCP DELUXE Work-in-Progress prize, consisting on a DCP Mastering worth 6.000€, and OpenECAM Work-in-Progress prize, which provides the chance to use all the sets, studios and equipment available at ECAM during the 18 months following FICX’s closing ceremony for the post-production of the awarded project.

Following up, the second day of the event will close with the Asturian Film Meeting where the directors and producers of the local films programmed in the different sections of the Festival will briefly present their works to an audience composed by national and international attending professionals.

Wednesday 21 will kick off with the panel Festivals: their films and their audience the first activity of Torino Short Film Market and Gijón Film Festival’s collaborative project BE SHORT NOW! mentioned above.

This will be followed by the talk Everything you have signed and you shouldn’t have signed organized in cooperation with Spanish screenwriters Union ALMA. From their personal experience, Sergio Barrejón (filmmaker and screenwriter) and Tomás Rosón (Lawyer at ALMA) will explain in a helpful and funny way the key items screenwriters face when negotiating a contract, the mistakes they should not make, the parts they should negotiate in detail, and the best way to do it.

This day’s programme (November 21) will also include a Pitching Session with the screenwriters selected for the 6th edition of the Scriptwriting Lab by SGAE Foundation. The event features the following projects and speakers:
