Project Development Workshops
Series of workshops concentrating on script development, financing and marketing that producers and authors of selected feature-fiction projects undertake before presenting their projects at the CineLink Market. The workshops take place in Sarajevoin June.
Taking place during the last three days of Sarajevo Film Festival, every August CineLink Co-production Market presents the best of feature fiction projects in preparation by both emerging and already acclaimed authors from Southeast Europe.
Market is based on the CineMart model, using prescheduled ‘’one to one’’ meetings in order to link the projects with potential partners. It attracts over 300 delegates from all film industry sectors, allowing the authors and producers to close the entire structure of their projects at one place.
Three projects from CineLink selection are each awarded with 10 000 EUR in cash, plus 2 500 EUR in services of our sponsors. One of the producers receives a prestigious EAVE scholarship, allowing him/her further development of the project on the highest possible level.
