Following last year’s successful run on the international festival circuit of Martin Turk’s A GOOD DAYS WORK, Sarajevo Film Festival and Turkish National Radio Television (TRT) have partnered again to produce two more micro-budget features in the framework of the Sarajevo City of Film for Global Screen (SCF GS) project.
A GOOD DAY’S WORK, produced by the Sarajevo-based Obala Art Center, will head to France shortly after screening in the main competition program of the Busan Film Festival in South Korea. The film will be screened on October 21st and 24th, in the competition programme of the 40th CINEMED - Montpellier Festival of Mediterranean Cinema, running October 19-27.
Principal photography has officially wrapped on four short films by young filmmakers from the Balkan region which were backed by the Sarajevo City of Film initiative and produced by Obala Art Center. The four films will premiere at the 24th Sarajevo Film Festival to be held from August 10-17.
Today a new call for entries for Sarajevo City of Film was announced. The project gives young filmmakers from the region an opportunity to collaborate around short film projects - and to have them funded, produced and screened.
