MIDPOINT discussion panel & alumni in the program of Karlovy Vary IFF

MIDPOINT Institute & Audiovisual Producers´ Association & Nova TV discussion panel about new environmentalism in film industry

June 23, 2022

In the frame of MIDPOINT activities within the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, a discussion panel “Production Sustainability & Climate Content” will be held.

The Earth is our only location – so what are the best filmmaking practices in order to protect our planet? The film industry has a unique power to set trends, motivate and positively influence mainstream audiences towards more sustainable behaviour. This unique potential should be used to its fullest given the current climate crisis. This seminar, created in cooperation between the Audiovisual Producers' Association, MIDPOINT Institute and TV Nova, will offer both “Sustainability in Cinema 101” as well as best practices on how to approach the topic already at the development stage. 

WHEN AND WHERE: July 4 / 17:00-18:00 CET / KVIFF.TV Park

After years together, Petr and Hana, partners in work and in life, share their unspoken erotic fantasies. What begins as an innocent conversation gradually turns into curious experimentation with a non-monogamous approach to their relationship. But sexual freedom tastes differently for each of them. Without resorting to exploitation, Tomasz Wiński’s feature debut considers questions that are taboo for many couples. Borders of Love explores not only various forms of intimacy but also ways of depicting it on the big screen, since, among others, the protagonists themselves film each other on their mobile phones. Appearing in the main roles are Matyáš Řezníček and Hana Vagnerová, who collaborated on the film’s story and script as well.
