FRED Film Radio is media partner of the Producers on the Move networking platform which will take place at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival. We asked the 20 producers that have been invited to participate to introduce themselves to our airwaves, tell us about their work, their company and some of the projects from their past, present and future. Here is one of them: Aet Laigu, founder and manager of Meteoriit.
AET LAIGU worked on the production of several shorts, TV commercials, documentaries and feature films in Estonia before setting up her own company Meteoriit in 2008. These included Kadri Kousaar’s 2007 film Magnus, marking the beginning of a long-standing collaboration with the writer-director and followed by her next two features The Arbiter and Mother. Aet is now developing another two features by Kousaar – Nordic Instinct and Dead Woman – for 2017 and 2018.
20 of the most energetic, emerging producers from across Europe are selected to participate in the networking platform PRODUCERS ON THE MOVE at the Cannes International Film Festival. EFP has set a high standard for participation and creates a tightly focused working environment involving project pitchings, 1:1 meetings as well as extensive promotion of the producers via profiles in the international trade papers. The aim of this initiative is to assist European producers in finding partners for their upcoming projects, to strengthen industry networking opportunities and to offer a platform where the producer’s potential is recognised.
