Czech Film Springboard is an industry programme organised by the Czech Film Fund / Czech Film Center in cooperation with Finále Plzeň film festival since 2016.

In 2020, the programme will run online between September 25–27, 2020.

Czech Film Springboard is composed in four parts:

  • Pitching & Round Tables - Presentation of upcoming Czech films
  • Who Is Who
  • Funding News

Presentation of projects

Pitching & Round Tables (closed presentation and consultation)
Presentation of 6-8 Czech projects in development. Selected projects are pitched to invited international experts from various areas of film industry by their producers and directors and later discussed individually at round tables with selected professionals.
The event is closed for public and accessible only for invited experts and presenters of the selected projects. The ultimate goal is to draw attention of competent international experts to carefully selected Czech projects in various stages of development, and to give the projects a chance to test their viability.

Who Is Who
Informal meeting with the invited foreign film industry experts. Representatives of co-production markets, financing platforms, festivals, training initiatives and sales agents present their activities. Open to all film professionals present at the festival.

Funding News
Moderated discussion about funding opportunities and co-producing in Europe. The representatives of different national funds  give an overview, and answer questions on accessing financing in their countries. Open to all film professionals present at the festival.
