The last Ex Oriente Film workshop session (+ East European Forum pitching workshop) includes a number of lectures, seminars, screenings and that are open to non-participants and holders of a valid East European Forum/East Silver industry pass. The programme of each Ex Oriente Film session and the East European Forum workshop includes case studies on films by former participants. Case studies are valuable in that they present specific experiences of East European filmmakers who, though sharing similar production conditions, face different obstacles and difficulties in the course of development, production and distribution of their films.
