The Sarajevo Film Festival's CineLink Industry Days has announced the selection of the first batch of projects that are set to take part in this year's edition, within the Co-Production Market and Drama sections. They have already passed through the preparatory workshop, which took place online at the end of April.

“This year's CineLink will not only be unique due to the ongoing pandemic, but also because it will gather a new generation of authors that demand to be heard through strong, gripping cinematic storytelling,” says head of CineLink Amra Bakšić Čamo. “The line-up features first- and second-time directors’ projects, and their common traits are wittiness, passion and the ability to be thought-provoking. This year’s CineLink Drama selection features a very diverse line-up, and it is a great indicator that this part of the industry is keeping pace with the rest of the continent.”

The second call for the CineLink Co-Production Market is open and is focused on feature-length fiction projects from established auteurs, at advanced stages of development and financing, pursuing a good market access point in CineLink to further their conversion and placement effort. The call is open until 3 June and can be accessed here.

Meanwhile, the five documentary projects selected for the tenth Docu Rough Cut Boutique took part in their first workshop – which traditionally takes place in Sofia in collaboration with the Balkan Documentary Centre – online at the end of March.
