There will be video statements by three members of AVTE (Amalie Foss, Jean-François Cornu and Henrik W. Johnsen) talking about the history of dubbing and subtitling, the background of national guidelines, and presenting AVTE’s opinion on them. Professor Jan Pedersen of Stockholm University will participate in a video conference and have a discussion with the audience.

There will be presentations and lectures on subtitling by representatives of the Translation Department of the University of Ljubljana, the Slovenian national broadcaster (Televizija Slovenija), the Slovenian Cinematheque (Slovenska kinoteka), and others.
