Sarajevo Talent Campus
Sarajevo Talent Campus is a seven-day creative and networking platform for up and coming and talented film professionals eager to learn from established film professionals willing to share their knowledge, taking place during and closely linked to all parts of the Sarajevo Film Festival. The programme was launched in 2007 by the Sarajevo Film Festival and in cooperation with Berlin International Film Festival and Berlinale Talent Campus.
The 5th edition of the Sarajevo Talent Campus will take place from 24th till 30th July, 2011.
Sarajevo Talent Campus application will be open from March 16th to May 25th, 2011.
The programme of Sarajevo Talent Campus is open to young film professionals and film students in final years of their study from thirteen countries: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Hungary, Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, Turkey and UNMI Kosovo. In cooperation with Robert Bosch Stiftung, ten young film producers from Germany are invited to attend Sarajevo Talent Campus with a special guests` status. Through this initiative, the basis for future European film co-productions is established.
Sarajevo Talent Campus aims to enhance theoretical and practical education of young film professionals through its program of intensive workshops, lectures, panel discussions. Designed to fill in the gap between film school education and practical working experience – the production of short and feature-length films – Sarajevo Talent Campus seeks to create connections not only among fellow-talents, but also between them and experienced film professionals, Sarajevo Film Festival guests and CineLink Co-Production Market participants.
The natural follow-up of Sarajevo Talent Campus – Sarajevo City of Film was initiated with the aim of utilizing experiences and knowledge gained at the Sarajevo Talent Campus for creation of micro-budget short films which are shot in Sarajevo by Campus participants.
