We are proud to present first six projects selected for CineLink Co-Production market. First call was intended chiefly, but not exclusively, for projects from first and second time filmmakers who are participating in the preparatory workshop in Sarajevo. Six projects are selected for this phase and they will all be presented at the CineLink Co-Production Market during the Sarajevo Film Festival in August 2016. 

Second call for entries is open from 25th of March until 26th 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. You can find application form for second call for entries here.
