10 juni 2020: Let’s talk about web series!

Film i Väst invites you to an introduction to the world of web series, where we will dive into several key questions around the format. Focus here will be on what it means to create, exhibit, fund and distribute web series outside (or on the fringe) of the traditional film and tv industry.

Web series are as diverse as the crowd that produces them, and part of their thrill is the freedom to create whatever you want. So, what importance can this playground have in our film and tv industry today, especially one that is crying out for original ideas and more diversity?

Practical information: The seminar will be held in English via Zoom and led by Regina Mosch from Copenhagen Web Fest. The afternoon will consist of an introduction by Regina, a screening of four selected web series and a Q&A with web series creators Jeanette Nørgaard and Alice Frick. Don’t worry, we will also have a little break in between the talks. As a bonus, you will also get curated list of series to watch afterwards.

When? June 10th 1pm – 3pm

19 maj 2020: Tomas Eskilsson om filmen efter pandemin

Tisdag 19 maj hölls Film i Väst Talks med Film i Västs strategichef som i en intervju av Ulrika Grönérus reflekterar över filmlandskapet på andra sidan pandemin.

Vad händer med biograferna? Hur många filmaktörer och hur många frilansare kommer försvinna under krisen? Kommer produktionerna att återupptas? Blir det några skatterabatter i Sverige? Vad får streamingtjänsternas framfart för följder? Vad händer med kvalitetsfilmen?
