Sarajevo Film Festival proudly presents first eight projects selected for CineLink and announces second call for entries.

We are proud to present first eight projects selected for CineLink co-production market. First call was intended chiefly, but not exclusively, for projects from first and second time filmmakers interested in participation in the preparatory workshop scheduled from 3rd until 7th of April.   Eight projects are selected for this phase and they will all be presented at the CineLink coproduction market during the Sarajevo Film Festival in August 2015. 

 

Second Call for entries is open from today until Monday 27th of April (00:00 midnight) and it targets projects from established authors, in advanced stage of development and financing, looking for a good market access point in CineLink to further their conversion and placement effort.
