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: Bostjan Ikovic, from Slovenia, representing the production company Arsmedia.
After studying Economics in Slovenia and Austria, BOSTJAN IKOVIC began working on the production of TV series, feature films and documentaries at the established Slovenian production house Arsmedia. He has worked with such directors as Marko Nabersnik (Shanghai Gypsy), Goran Vojnovic (Chefurs Raus) and Olmo Omerzu (Family Film) and is now developing a new project by Vojnovic – Once Were Human – as a co-production between Slovenia and Italy.
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.
