Prishtina International Film Festival pays a great attention to the film industry and one of the most important events is the PriFORUM Regional Coproduction Events. PriFORUM is the festival's regional film industry development platform that consist of a number of film industry events that bring together in Kosovo the filmmakers from Balkan and Europe. PriFORUM partners with many organsations and networks from the region and Europe who attend PriFORUM and present their work or offer expertise sessions for festival guests and filmmakers. A series of workshops, master classes and lectures are held for the students, audience and young filmmakers. In addition, the Best Pitch Competition is an important event that happens during the PriFORUM where the film projects from the region in the development or financing phase get a series of trainings and development sessions, namely pitching, script development, audience development, Financing Strategy advice, and then compete before the International jury with the aim to win the Best Pitch - Vanessa Redgrave Award for Prishtina International Film Festival. This year Best Pitch will offer more awards thanks to great collaborations with partner festivals and companies.
Some of the partner networks and organisations that offer their expertise to our festival for various development training and other collaboration activities are EAVE, Torino Film Lab, Script Circle Berlin, etc.
The last edition of Prishtina International Film Festival initiated a new rendezvous event for the regional and Kosovan talents to meet with International Sales and Distributors. Prishtina Rendezvous is an event dedicated to distribution and sales, and this year will be the second time where Prishtina will be the meeting point for the talents from the region and some of the most important companies of world sales and distribution in film industry in Europe.
Many producers, distributors, directors, actors and other filmmakers from the region and Europe, young and enthusiastic can be met during the festival. A number of interesting fun parties and outings are also organised for the guests. Given that the festival is not very big, it offers a great forum to meet people and expand the network in a much smaller intimate setting that offers a very friendly atmosphere.
