My film, my vision! Maintaining the editorial voice within international collaborations
IDFA INDUSTRY SESSION 2021
Ensuring artistic independence and keeping your editorial voice while working with international collaborators isn’t always a straightforward endeavor. When looking for funding and professional advice, from the development phase to the eventual release of their work, filmmakers are often confronted with a plethora of possible paths: Pitching platforms, industry workshops, international co-producers, and financiers with different territories and audience targets. While this can mean a supportive boost, it can also become a set of exhausting stumbling blocks on the road to exhibition. Through this transformative period, the editorial voice of the creator can quickly become confronted with varying influences and cultural differences.
