Ta-daaa! here’s the first step
the european capital of independent cinema
We believe that networking is much more than sharing posh business cards
“What's an European Capital of Independent Cinema?”, is a city (town, village) designated by TOOOK for a period of one calendar year during which it organises a series of cultural and cinema related events with a strong European dimension. “Yes, but how does it work?”
That's where you make your entrance.
We are not
Say you're part of an organization that already works the scene with some kind of independent cinema event; and you think it's time to raise its profile, while also creating valuable economic, socio-cultural benefits for the city/town/village it takes place in, maybe even improving its status on an international scale.
Well, then the next obvious move would be to contact us, and suggest your town to become next year's European Capital of Independent Cinema! See that? The plot has come together.
TOOOK will come and fill your environment with new input and ideas, giving life to a whole series of actions and high profile cultural events with a strong european dimension; all in tight collaboration with you.
Because that's where we make the difference too - in the pleasure we take at creating human bonds, real as our aim: to do our bit for the growth of independent cinema.
Do you run an independent film festival that has an international flavor to it but also a special relationship with the town it takes place in? Do you want to strengthen it by sharing your work with other european realities? Mixing up the uniqueness of your area with cultural events and actions? Nominating your home as European Capital of Independent Cinema? Do you want to propose an indie cinema-linked project of yours to be brought to the next European Capital?
Are you part of a cultural organization that deals with independent cinema at any level (festival, training, networking, promotion, no profit...) Do you want to nominate your city / town / village / atoll / whatever as the hosting place of TOOK, European Capital of Independent Cinema? Do you have a project you want to feature in the next European Capital?
Do you work in the field of independent cinema? Are you a director, producer, distributor, scriptwriter, platform owner? Do you have a film, a project, an idea that you may want to bring to the next European Capital?
Do you think the town you live in is the best on the world and you want to nominate it as European Capital of Independent Cinema? Do you want us to come over and get to know us, talk about it, see if our faces are ones to be trusted? Do you want to support the project?
Are you already mad with love for TOOOK? Are you bold enough to consider running TOOOK with us?
