The 2nd year of Industry Sundays will start in the premises of DEPO 2015 in Pilsen on Sunday, 11 November 2018. It is a program designed specifically for film experts as well as broader expert public. This year's topic is film education and its forms abroad. The morning part will offer an international discussion panel on the different phases, concepts and achievements of foreign projects in the field of film and audiovisual education with representatives from various European countries - Finland, Slovenia, Poland, Germany and Slovakia.

The conference afternoon will be held in the spirit of presenting the Czech projects for children and youth, and we will discuss the issue of how to distribute these works to get them wherever they should be seen. Both home and foreign film distribution specialists, producers and distributors with ambitions regarding children's films distribution will attend this panel.

The highlight of the whole program will be the master-class of the Oscar nominated director John Stevenson moderated by the journalist and film critic Kamila Boháčková. John Stevenson, the soon-to-be winner of the festival Golden Hand award, directed the global blockbuster Kung Fu Panda in 2008 with main characters dubbed by Angelina Jolie or Dustin Hoffman. Within this master-class, this prominent director and screenwriter will present his work and screen-writing techniques for various animated blockbusters such as Shrek, Shrek 2, or Madagascar, on which he participated.


The exact schedule of the Industry Sunday will be specified later.

The program is accessible to the public and free of charge.
