Future Frames: Ten new directors to follow

In its third year running, European Film Promotion’s initiative Future Frames will present ten promising young directors and their latest work at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival (KVIFF) from 2 to 5 July 2017. 

The programme, which is supported by Creative Europe's MEDIA sub-programme, aims to bring to attention to new European cinema and the talent behind it and sees the selected filmmakers take part in three days of events and screenings where they’ll be introduced to the public, industry and press.

The selected directors come from across Europe and were nominated by EFP members, with the final selection made by KVIFF. They are: 

  • Damián Vondrášek – Imprisoned (Czech Republic) 
  • Kirsikka Saari – After the Reunion (Finland) 
  • Giorgi Mukhadze – Waiting for Ana (Georgia) 
  • Elsa María Jakobsdóttir – Atelier (Iceland)
