In cooperation with the Filmmakers Association of Croatia (HDFD), ZFF presents a masterclass by producer Renée Hansen Mlodyszewski, who will talk about her involvement in the Oscar-nominated feature The Worst Person in the World (ZFF 2021) – from funding and production, to post-production and promotion of this charming dramedy about a millennial undergoing an identity crisis. In addition to the recent team-up with Norwegian melancholic Joachim Trier, in conversation with moderator Jelena Pašić, Renée will also touch on other films in her production oeuvre. She will reflect on her dynamic collaborations, share her vision of creative synergies, and provide tips on teamworking with screenwriters and directors.
A screening of Joachim Trier’s feature The Worst Person in the World will take place before the masterclass.
