Bienvenue la France!
This year we are happy to team up with one of Europe’s greatest countries for filmmaking to bring together people from our respective industries.
In collaboration with the Centre National du Cinéma et de l’image animée and the Embassy of France in Sarajevo, we’ll bring a strong delegation of French professionals from all spheres of the film business to CineLink.
The French delegation will be presented to all the participants, the French support system will be discussed and the possibilities of co-producing with France explained in detail, and last but not least, there will be a big Fête Nationale bash at the end of the Festival!
In addition, the French delegation members, many of whom are already CineLink regulars, will also be busy participating in meetings at the co-production market, taking a first look at the most promising films in shooting, or in post, in the Work in Progress section, or catching international and world premieres of films from the region in the Festivals’ Competition Programme.
The CineLink Partner Country Initiative has been running for a decade now, systematically strengthening the working relationship between professionals and institutions from this part of the world and their international counterparts. The Partner Country Initiative has led to many co-productions and an enhanced circulation of film works between the participating countries.
