The Sarajevo Film Festival (SFF) co-production market, CineLink, has selected 17 projects for its 2010 edition, from 16 eligible countries of South-Eastern Europe.
This year’s participants include award-winning directors Srdan Golubovic (The Trap [+see also:

film profile] is currently enjoying success at the Romanian box office (see news).
Twelve projects in the CineLink line-up will participate in the Project Development Workshop, organized in collaboration with the Sarajevo-based Binger Filmlab in April. Five projects selected for CineLink Plus will be presented directly at the market during SFF, which runs from July 23-31. One project will be added shortly before the market as a result of the Göteborg Film Fund initiative to include a film from non-eligible countries that shares similar production and artistic elements.
