Reality Check, originality

Every year, IFFR does a deep-dive into a significant issue of the film industry during its annual Reality Check, a conference and immersive workshop for industry experts. Reality Check offers inspiring keynotes and panel discussions followed by intimate, interactive working groups to discuss practical solutions for the future of the film industry.

This year’s Reality Check theme will be Originality: why we need original voices and original works to stand out from the monolithic culture presented by the global giants. How do we find originality in storytelling and form, and how do we think of original ways to get that work to audiences?

Reality Check relies on input from industry experts to keep the discussion relevant, stimulating and inspiring. IFFR appreciates any ideas and suggestions for the specific topics to discuss originality.

Curated by Wendy Mitchell and Esther Schmidt, and will be hosted by Wendy Mitchell
