Three debut feature projects are coming all the way from the Middle East: Fig Tree by Alamork Davidian and The Day After I'm Gone by Nimrod Elsar (both from Israel), plus the Lebanese-Egyptian documentary What Comes Around by Reem Saleh.

Two more debut features, Mo' by Romania's Radu Dragomir and the documentary Honeyland by Macedonia's Ljubo Stefanov and Tamara Kotevska, round off the selection.

The selected projects will be judged by a jury consisting of Paolo Bertolin (Venice Film Festival), Paz Lazaro (Berlin International Film Festival), Hedi Zardi (LuxBox), Petra Gobel (The Post Republic) and Serkan Yildirim (TRT), and will be vying for three awards: The Post Republic Award, worth €50,000 (in kind); the CineLink Restart Award, worth €20,000 (in kind); and the Turkish National Radio Television Award, worth €30,000 (in cash).

"The CineLink Work in Progress strand has proven to be incredibly effective for both the filmmakers presenting their works and the attending industry delegates," says Sarajevo's head of industry, Jovan Marjanović. "We are certain that this year’s projects are the films we will be watching on screens around the world in the next year or two."
