Cinelink 2015 first call for entries is now open
- New format of CineLink Project Development Workshops and new application procedures for CineLink co-production market, announced
CineLink, the co-production market held during the Sarajevo Film Festival (14-22 August 2015), and its preparatory workshops, continue to be adapted to the state and the needs of the film industry in the Southeastern European region in order to serve as a true catalyst for development and financing of internationally competitive projects.
To this end, this year CineLink will be operating two separate Calls for entries. The first Call, open from today until the January 15th deadline, is intended chiefly, but not exclusively, for projects from first and second time filmmakers interested in participation in the preparatory workshop scheduled for the late March/early April slot. Not more than 6 projects will be selected for this phase and they will all be presented at the CineLink coproduction market during the Sarajevo Film Festival in August 2015.
Second Call for entries will be published in April and it will target 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.
In addition to the regular collaborators, CineLink has also invited some of the leading directing and producing talent in the region to take part in the workshops and give master classes, discuss the selected projects and share their visions of cinema. Aida Begić, Ankica Jurić Tilić, Miroslav Mogorović and Srdan Golubović will be the guests lecturers and mentors at the 13th CineLink project development workshop.
