Sarajevo Film Festival’s industry wing, CineLink, has unveiled the 10 projects that will take part in its work-in-progress strand this year.
The selection includes 10 feature length films, eight fiction and two documentary, including works from Bulgaria, Hungary, Israel, Palestine, Romania, and Turkey, as well as a guest project from China.
The projects will be presented to close to 60 industry delegates including funders, sales agents, distributors, broadcasters and festival programmers.
They will compete for several prizes: the Post Republic Award (€50,000, in kind), the CineLink Iridium Award (€20,000, in kind) and the Turkish National Radio Television Award (€25,000, cash).
Kim Yutani (Sundance Film Festival), Marco Mueller (Pingyao Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon International Film Festival), Tolke Palm (The Post Republic), Gabor Greiner (Films Boutique), and a Turkish National Radio Television representative will decide this year’s winners.
Three work-in-progress projects selected for last year’s CineLink premired at the 2018 Berlinale: Àga by Milko Lazarov, Horizon by Tinatin Kajrishvili, and What Comes Around by Reem Saleh.
