Europe Now!: Ten directors heading to Karlovy Vary
10/06/2008 - Ten films by ten emerging European directors are part of this year's Variety Critics' Choice: Europe Now! section of the 43rd Karlovy Vary International Film Festival (July 4-12, 2008).
The ten titles – seven of which are debut features - have been selected by the critics of international trade paper Variety in association with European Film Promotion (EFP). Directors (or cast members) will attend the festival to promote the films and participate in a Q&A with audiences.
Following preceding collaborations with the EFP, Cineuropa is once again an associate of the initiative and in the upcoming weeks will publish exclusive interviews with the selected filmmakers:
