etc. – events.trainings.connections.

Since 2011, the section etc. - events. trainings. connections. section complements the film programme of the FILMFEST DRESDEN. This section is all about mediation, exchange and networking and offers opportunities to engage with current trends and topics in the film industry. Depending on the event, the offers are aimed both at accredited festival guests with a professional interest in short film and at the interested festival audience.

In addition to master classes, consultations, exhibitions and discussions, there are also workshops, such as the Visegrád Forum, which was launched in 2015 and focuses on the film scenes of Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia.

The offers of this section are divided into three different areas: public events, specialised trainings and connecting networking events.
