Ji.hlava New Visions Forum 2023 winners

The Ji.hlava New Visions Forum 2023 celebrated the most promising projects in the film industry by presenting ten distinguished awards. The Forum showcased twenty-two exceptional projects in various stages of production.

Moreover, a new co-production venture was unveiled. The Ji.hlava/JB Films co-production project, a combined effort of the Ji.hlava IDFF and the long-standing festival partner Jan Barta, promises to financially back creative documentaries from Central and Eastern Europe. With a substantial sum of up to EUR 110,000 set for distribution next year, film enthusiasts can expect the official announcement of selected films for this initiative in June 2024, following a call for proposals in February 2024.
