My every year Film Festival - Camerimage (from 2006 to today - each year full time)
The Baltic Event - At PÖFF - Black Nights Film Festival 2016 - Tallinn (Estonia) - I was there a lecturer about the Creative Europe Supported - Educational Workshop of Poland - FilmSpringOpen
At the IFFR Pro Days, I had the chance to be at each offered Panel learned and promoted to filmmaker from around the world the amazing opportunity to prepare their next projects at FilmSpringOpen
A little overview ... the panels at IFFR have bin super amazing ... there I transformed more and more to a half Director / half Producer Person
At the Berlinale 2017, I just bought the normal Badge ... because the EFM was with this already accessible and I could start to approach each European Country Representation with my Project and asked them for possible Director Names or Info material about Directors of their Country in general.
When in my region the FilmBüro NW lunches a Panel about political Filmmaking I had to be there.
Cannes is the Superlative of Film Markets - I applied for the free badge - and I got it - my Goal was to network and to be at the European Film Forum and meet others who believe in Europe and work for it by the medium of film.
My Diplomfilm "Back and Forward INC." at an International Film Festival Competition - @ In the Palace 14th - Balchik (Bulgaria) - I applied for travel support for this 2500KM trip away of my home town at AG Kurzfilm -> AND -> I got the travel support ... again a big "Thank you" to AG Kurzfilm
