EFP FUTURE FRAMES - Generation NEXT of European Cinema puts a spotlight on outstanding young directors from Europe. Ten film students and graduates will be presenting their films at the 56th Karlovy Vary International Film Festival (KVIFF), running from 1 to 9 July, 2022.
The filmmakers are nominated by their countries' national film promotion institutes, with the final selection being done by KVIFF's artistic director Karel Och and his team of programmers. The young directors will be offered a two-part schedule, starting with an online pre-programme including pitching training and industry meetings (27– 28 June). During the festival, EFP will introduce the young directors and their films – all Czech premieres – to the public, film industry and press. The three-day event, running from July 4–6, will be rounded off by a master class.
