Due to the current Covid-19 crisis and the restrictive measures in place, the Bulgarian government ordered a ban on all indoor cultural events, including closing theatres and cinemas.
Consequently, the Sofia Film Festival and the Sofia Meetings had to be postponed to an undefined date. This also means that the European VoD Meetings, which was meant to start on March 18th, is cancelled. We were looking forward to welcoming the participants and share our programme consisting in discussions, case studies & networking events, focused on the VoD sector, but also in cooperation with Europa Cinemas and Europa Distribution. We would like to take this occasion to thank all the partners, experts and participants for their support and understanding for this inevitable situation. Particularly, we would to like to thank the Sofia IFF and Sofia Meetings for their crucial help in the organisation of our training, but also bring our support to the team after the cancellation of their events.
You can find here our full programme and list of participants that were going to attend the training in Sofia.
We will inform the participants about the next dates of the next training, which might be postponed to the next session that was scheduled in Venice, Italy, from September 1-4. We would be happy to welcome the same participants In any case trainees will keep the same financial conditions and scholarship agreed, and the programme will just improve.
