Promoting East European films

At the Berlinale, in Cannes, and most recently at the Karlovy Vary Festival, there have been a growing number of programmes aimed at promoting Eastern European films as well as young directors and actors from this region. Irena Zemanova and Hana Novakova praise these initiatives, most of which are financed by the EU and its European Film Promotion programme. "Smaller countries, in particular, have trouble getting access to the international market. In Karlovy Vary major foreign producers got to see several dozen new Eastern European films. Anna Geislerova is one of several Czech actors who has made a name for herself in this way and who has already been nominated for an Oscar. The whole project is aimed at opening up the American market for European films. The paradoxical side of it is that after making a detour through America, European films have it easier on the old continent."
