Karlovy Vary IFF announces works-in-progress line-up


- Slate of films includes latest film from director of The World is Big and Salvation Lies Around The Corner

Karlovy Vary IFF announces works-in-progress line-up

The annual Works In Progress section at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival will present 19 works from Central and Eastern Europe to international sales agents. This year’s selection is a mixture of newcomers and established directors including Oscar shortlisted director Stefan Komandarev will be in attendance with his lastest film The Judgement.

The event has grown to become an important step for filmmakers in the region to increase the interest in their works with industry professionals from across the world. Director Arsen Anton Ostojic, who attended last year’s Works In Progress with the film Halima’s Path, told Cineuropa: “I participated twice in Works in Progress section of Karlovy Vary Festival and I'd love to participate again with my new films, whenever there is a chance. Last year I received several calls from important festivals and sales agents following my presentation. So, you never know what it is going to happen, but a project should definitely be in Works in Progress, if possible. Frankly, I don't know a better similar section that this one in Karlovy Vary.”

Halima’s Path has gone on to festival success, winning prizes at the likes of Tallinn’s Black Nights Film Festival, Cottbus Film Festival of Eastern European Cinema and the Cairo International Film Festival.
