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: Joël Jent, from Switzerland, representing the production company Dschoint Ventschr Filmproduktion (pronounced “Joint Venture.”)
Starting 2003, Joël Jent has produced several documentary and short film projects, including films under his own direction. Since April 2011 he works as a producer at Dschoint Ventschr Filmproduktion – one of Switzerlands leading independent production companies. He appreciates arthouse cinema and is a binge-watching enthusiast and pursues his dream of producing an international drama series in the near future.
Joel Jent is Switzerland’s Producer on the Move. He produced Iraqi Odyssey by Samir – Switzerland’s contribution to the Academy Awards 2016. Dschoint Ventschr Filmproduktion produces documentary and feature films on cultural, political and social issues, with special focus on cross-cultural encounters and new visual approaches.
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.
