They come from Netherlands, Switzerland, Azerbaijan, Germany, France, Lebanon United-Kingdom, Czech Republic and Portugal and are charting remarkable and unique paths in the film Industry. The Industry Academy will not only offer them a perfect opportunity to interact with a group of top-level professionals, but also to quiz the experts and enhance their own hands-on professional experience, while gaining insights into the work of their colleagues.
