Shorts Distribution Workshop

25. 11. – 3. 12. 2023

Film content distribution is a thriving and profitable industry. But when we talk about the distribution of auteur animated short films, we immediately see that this is a field with its own peculiarities and rules. After the international success of animated films for adults and the popularization of this type of film expression, we realized that filmmakers need high-quality and concrete distribution strategies and distributors.

We collaborate with CEE Animation Workshop, the leading training programme for animation industry professionals. They have teamed up with Luce Grosjean, a co-founder and the president of MIYU (France), the largest distribution company specializing in short original animated films, to design an in-depth and interactive workshop for anyone interested in learning more about the specifics, problems and solutions of successfully distributing short animated films. The workshop offers a rich program and the participation of key international players in the field of short film distribution, who will share their knowledge and experience.

The Shorts Distribution Workshop will be held in Ljubljana between 25 November and 3 December 2023. It will consist of facilitated group sessions and interactive sessions led by tutors Luce Grosjean and Juraj Krasnohorsky, as well as panels and masterclasses by Benoit Berthe (Animation Showcase, FR), Vanja Andrijević (Bonobo, HR), Wouter Jansen (Square Eyes, NL), Magdalena Drgas (New Europe Film Sales, PL), Cord Dueppe (Interfilm, DE), Valentin Rebondy (Cinema Public Films, FR), Britt Raes (BE) and others.
