Sarajevo Talent Campus 2012
We proudly present you the 6th edition of the Sarajevo Talent Campus within which creators of today’s film and young film artists will have an opportunity to explore the topic “Film and Possible Futures”, not only in the sense of social and technological changes happening rapidly before our eyes, but also in the sense of multiple possibilities these changes bring.
With each year of its existence, the Sarajevo Talent Campus keeps growing and enriching its content, and thus from this year, in addition to candidates from countries of Southeast Europe, the Talent Campus will include participants from four countries of the broader region: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Moldova, whose presence will enrich the Campus with their diversity of approach to the art of film.
Also, this year, alongside the already existing programmes for actors, producers, directors, and scriptwriters, the Sarajevo Talent Campus introduces a programme for film critics, in order to form a critical group whose work will, in the course of time, follow and improve the work of young film artists.
This year again, the Talent Campus offers a handful of interesting contents consisting of lectures, panel discussions, and conversations for all the participants, already smoothly running workshops scheduled for each group of artists, as well as a “networking” opportunity organized in cooperation with our partner the Robert Bosch Foundation, such as “speed matching”, “speed dating”, and “one on one” meetings, which will give the opportunity to the participants to present themselves to each other, but also to the group of ten German producers.
We continue with the programme segment “Pack&Pitch” giving an opportunity to the selected participants to learn, under professional mentorship, how to analyze and prepare projects for presentation, and how to apply the knowledge they have gained through presentations to experienced film professionals, guests of the Sarajevo Film Festival, and participants of the CineLink coproduction market.
Screenings of the new programme Kinoscope, Open Air and New Currents programmes, as well as the Competition programmes will precede the sessions during which the participants will meet the authors of the currently most actual films, as well as numerous guests of the festival: Todd Solondz, Aida Begić, Orhan Eskikoy, Zeynel Dogan, Tatiana Huezo, Eyal Sivan, Benedek Fliegauf, Cosmina Stratan, Cristina Flutur, Philippe Bober, Nancy Bishop, Leon Lučev, Licia Eminenti, Olivia Hetreed, Kate Leys, Sydney Levine, Peter Belesito, Rémi Bonhomme and many others.
We are looking forward to one more opportunity for a regional meeting full of learning and companionship.
