The 7th edition of the Italian co-production forum When East Meets West, will take place this year from 22 to 24 January 2017, always in the frame of Trieste Film Festival. With emphasis in France, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, this year’s spotlight territories, more than 350 industry professionals from more than 30 countries will participate in WEMW 2017.

The selection committee of the co-production forum WEMW announced the 22 selected projects in development which include 10 documentaries and 12 feature films.

According to the head of When East Meets West, Alessandro Gropplero, “This year more than ever we had a very hard time to finalize the selection as the overall quality of the applications received was outstanding. We are very happy with the 22 selected projects, both for their variety of stories and the talented directors and producers behind them. But now it comes down to us, WEMW, connecting each selected team with the right partners”.

In this year’s WEMW edition, the Balkan region will be represented with three projects.
