The selected projects are currently taking part in the CineLink preparatory workshop until 25 June, ahead of their presentation from 14-19 August. The filmmakers and creators will spend three weeks working with the CineLink staff and the regular team of tutors and consultants on the further development of their projects.

Amra Bakšić Čamo, head of CineLink, said: “We are pleased to see that our sector is getting back on its feet, and this year’s selection of projects in both strands presents very strong, authentic voices across Southeast Europe, which are challenging the realities that we live in. It seems that the pandemic has sharpened our creative lenses, and what connects all of these projects is their emphasis on social and personal responsibility towards the other, and the urgency to be heard through strong, gripping cinematic storytelling.

“The Co-Production Market line-up features first- and second-time directors’ projects, and their common trait is that they are passionate and thought-provoking. This year’s CineLink Drama line-up is very diverse, with established filmmakers and newcomers, and it is a great indicator that this part of the industry is keeping up with the rest of the continent.”
