International co-productions. A Conversation with Nadya Gorshkova

With great pleasure, we'll have producer Nadezhda Gorshkova, who developed a succesful career as an actress, and subsequently evolved into setting up her production company to complete successful international co-productions.

This Hang-out  goes on to examine the process involved in developing and producing Inhale-Exhale and The Antique, which both received Eurimages support.

The talk will be conducted by producer Maria Ibrahimova. The case study will be situated within the wider context of international co-production, reflecting on the artistic and commercial approach for international co-productions.
