For the second year in a row, Transilvania Pitch Stop (TPS), the co-production platform organised by the 17th Transilvania International Film Festival (25 May-3 June), continues its focus on Romania, the Black Sea and the neighbouring regions. Ten feature-film projects that are at various stages of development and financing are invited to be presented at a special two-day pitching session on 1 and 2 June in Cluj-Napoca. Furthermore, the fifth edition of the TPS project development workshop will welcome five projects hailing from Romania and Moldova.
In detail, the ten projects that will get the chance to attend Transilvania Pitch Stop come from Serbia, Hungary, Georgia, Turkey, Russia and Romania. Some of the highlights include the sophomore films by Romanian filmmaker Ivana Mladenovic, best known for her Toronto-premiered debut Soldiers. Story from Ferentari [+leggi anche:
