Don’t Miss the Deadline for Rough Cut Boutique

Deadline to apply is 30th June 2014.

5 projects, 6 group sessions, 20 individual one-to-one meetings, 5 plus 2 mentors and 4 awards. 

The idea behind the Sarajevo Film Festival/Balkan Documentary Center’s Docu Rough Cut Boutique is to offer to 5 chosen projects from the region, tailor-made coaching, expert advice and access to decision-makers who can have crucial influence on moving the projects in their final stage forward. During intensive group sessions and well prepared individual ones, the selected teams and mentors are focused on working on the quality of the material in the rough cut stage. This is why our esteemed mentors come from different backgrounds within documentary scene – they are directors, producers, broadcasters, distributers and documentary consultants from Europe and the USA.


From this edition of the Docu Rough Cut Boutique on, we offer also to all projects one- year mentoring by 3 Skype sessions plus 1 personal meeting at a convenient film festival/market within 12 months after the workshop.

How we work?

The Docu Rough Cut Boutique’s programme runs for 4 days in 6 group and 20 one-on-one sessions. Each session is by a new tutor, coming from either film directing, producing, commissioning or festival programming background while the two moderating tutors are with the participants for the whole duration of the workshop. The second part of the 6th session is reserved for a master-class on film marketing, promotional strategic planning, incl. questions on festival scheduling, TV sales/offers, approaching and working with a distributor/sales agent/broadcaster and many others.
