“This year’s submissions showed us that there is new talent emerging in our regional documentary scene. Interestingly, many applications arrived from Hungary, submitted by rather young, committed filmmakers who are razor-sharp in their observations of the reality around them,” say Rada Šešić and Martichka Bozhilova, directors of DRCB. “Lots of the applications received were from female directors and producers, and we are delighted that gender equality is scoring better and better every year.”

The projects will take part in two workshop sessions before being invited to the final presentation at the Sarajevo Film Festival in August: the first will be held in Budapest at the end of March, in collaboration with Duna Dok and HBO Europe, and the second in Sofia in June.
