As we’d like to present the best quality within the KVIFF Eastern Promises framework, it is very important that we reward those who have worked extremely hard during the Feature Launch program. The new development award will hopefully bring the projects even closer to completion.”

„Our aim is to help emerging talents from our region and we know how the amount of 10.000 EUR can be crucial during the stage of development. That is why we are thrilled and proud that we can offer to our participants the financial support which will help them even after our program concludes,“ adds Sona Morgenthalova, Program Coordinator of MIDPOINT Feature Launch.
