39th INTERNATIONAL FEATURE CONFERENCE
2013, May 12-16
Warm regards from
The Norwegian Documentary Department
We are looking forward to welcoming you to the 39th International Feature Conference in Bergen 2013 in May!
You will meet feature makers from all over the world: Europe, China, Turkey, Argentina, Nepal, Canada, Russia and Australia!
Please find (below or download) the Conference Timetable.
There might be some small changes and adjustments, but essentially this is what will happen during the conference days.
We hope that you will join in at the Welcome Reception 12th May at 19.30 in Hotel Terminus Whiskey Bar, to meet old and new friends and have a glass of wine with us!
We will come back to you with information about how to get there and other details, but for now only one thing:
On Wednesday 15th May, it’s your opportunity to share informally your favorite bits of feature-making with your colleagues over a pint or a glass of wine in the relaxed surroundings of an old Bergen Bar.
Bring along your CDs or memory sticks and translations (if needed) of the 2-3-minutes part you want to share!
Please contact Hege Dahl, firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
