In 2013 Holland Meets ...
In 2013 the Holland Film Meeting will examine the Russian audiovisual industries, and will host a delegation of Russian funders and producers who will explain their working methods, discuss their recent output and isolate the common areas of interest in order to facilitate dynamic and ongoing co-operation with the Dutch and European industries.
In addition, three high-quality Russian projects in development will be selected for the Netherlands Production Platform co-production market (27-28 September 2013), joining approximately seventeen others from the Netherlands and Europe.
The Russian theme will continue as an acclaimed auteur will deliver the annual Cinema Militans lecture, presented again in association with the British film magazine Sight & Sound. The lecture, which comprises a personal overview of the current and future trajectories of the medium of cinema, will take place on Sunday 30 September 2012.
This 2013 focus on Russia is a collaboration between the Northern Seas Film Forum (St Petersburg) and the Holland Film Meeting.
In previous years the spotlight has been placed firmly, and very successfully on the Scandinavian production industries (2011) and on Turkey (2012).
Central to the 2012 Holland Film Meeting were two focuses on fellow European states, Turkey and Germany, during which Dutch producers were introduced to their Turkish and German counterparts while their representatives of their respective funding bodies talked co-production policy.

Dutch Industry Days
The Holland Film Meeting structure was bolstered in 2012 by a series of daily focuses on issues of immediate concern to Dutch and international professionals. These included a top-level assessment of the Turkish audiovisual sectors, a presentation of Dutch talent and a day dedicated to cross-media programming. The film and television sectors were also placed under the microscope, when the pertinent issues of production cashflow and the remake potential of Dutch TV drama were examined.

Binger/Screen International Interview - Michaël R. Roskam & Cinema Militans Lecture - Semih Kaplanoglu
Two keystones of the Holland Film Meeting are Binger/Screen International Interview and the Cinema Militans lecture. The 2012 events were notable for their delicious counterpoint as two directors with two very different approaches to their craft explained their modus operandi.
