When East Meets West (WEMW), the pitching forum organized by Friuli Venezia Giulia Audiovisual Fund (FVG Audiovisual Fund) and the Trieste Film Festival, this year has a double focus on the Nordic countries and South-East Europe, aiming to enforce the collaborations between them.


These countries will participate in WEMW 2018, each one with its own delegation, while the Greek delegation is organized by the Greek Film Centre (GFC). The delegation will include 8 Greek young and upcoming, as well as distinguished, film professionals, coming from the fields of production, sales and distribution.
The members of the Greek delegation will have the opportunity to follow the activities of WEMW and develop networking with film professionals from abroad. For each of its members, the GFC will cover 3-nights’ accommodation, industry accreditation that gives full access to the WEMW 2018 programmes and travel reimbursement of 150 euros.
