Slovenian producer, Danijel Hocevar, is appointed the new Head of Studies at MIDPOINT Feature Launch.
Hocevar has for many years functioned as consultant and tutor for MIDPOINT Feature Launch, and it is therefore a natural choice for MIDPOINT to appoint him Head of Studies for the growing Feature Launch program, just as well as he will continue as one of the core tutors.
He is born in 1965 in Ljubljana, and is a producer with extensive working experience on international co-productions and narrow budget films, as well as being the managing director of Vertigo, a Ljubljana-based film production company.
