The CineLink Drama programme of the Sarajevo Film Festival (16-23 August), a co-financing forum presenting series from the Southeast Europe region to distributers, broadcasters, and VoD and SVoD platforms, has revealed its core selection of six projects coming from nine countries in the region. These projects will first be developed at a workshop in Slano, Croatia, which will be aimed at script development and story editing in order to position the projects better on the market. The crowning event will be a pitching session that will take place on 20 August in Sarajevo, where the projects will compete for the following awards: €15,000 from the Croatian Audiovisual Centre and the opportunity to present the project at the TV Drama Vision event in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Hailing from Romania and the Czech Republic, Angelmaker is created, written and directed by Cristina Groşan, and is realised as a co-production by Tangaj Production and Xova Film. It tells the story of a midwife who uses home-made arsenic to help a woman get rid of her violent husband, but when more women come seeking help, it leads to a poisoning epidemic.

The Magic Wrap is a Turkish project created, written and directed by Ipek Ural Demirel and Ali Demirel, and produced by Karma Films. It tells the story of a Turkish-German couple embarking on a hopeful journey to Berlin, where they get embroiled in a mysterious crime caper after biting into a magic döner.

Written by Filip Jokanović and directed by Sara Stijović (who also serves as one of the producers, along with Jon Gojani), Pray for Us is a mystery series revolving around a priest moving to a war-torn village in Bosnia in order to save it from ten biblical plagues. In order to do so, he must find the body of the previous priest, revealing the village’s dark past in the process. It is being produced by Kot Productions in co-production with Tiny Sofa, with Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo and Montenegro listed as the production countries.

Palaveevi Sisters is a co-production between Bulgaria, North Macedonia and Serbia by Miramar Film, OXO Production and Living Pictures. It is created by Alek Popov, and written by Popov and Delyana Maneva, with Ilian Djevelekov on board as the director. This combination of a contemporary epic and a comedy about the individual’s role in history tells the story of two girls lost in the world of war, looking to find meaning.
