CineLink Drama 2016

Welcome to CineLink Drama - an exciting new addition to our Industry Days that reflects the thirst for quality drama series in Southeast Europe, from audience, broadcasters and producers alike.

This pilot edition of CineLink Drama presents six new series currently being developed to key European and regional broadcasters, VoD and SVoD operators, and distributors in an open pitch presentation followed by one-on-one meetings.

To provide a platform to discuss industry challenges and share best practices, Regional Forum, Sarajevo's established debate platform, has been connected with CineLink Drama and will present talks and masterclasses with guests including Steve Matthews, Executive Producer, Drama Development, HBO Europe; Robin Veith, writer for Mad Men and True Blood; and Petri Kemppinen, CEO, Nordisk Film & TV Fond.
