CALL FOR PROJECTS
We are looking for script projects to be developed during the Divan Film Festival, an unique event dedicated to Balkan movies and culinary art, which happens in Port Cetate, on the Danube shore.
Who? • Writers & directors from the Balkans with a project at an early stage of development, (treatment of 2 pages max.) interested in low budget cinema and collaborative work. When and where? • The call for projects is open from June 1st to 15 July 2018. The festival will cover travel costs to Port Cetate (Romania), accommodation and meals from 27th to 30th of august for the writer of the selected project(s). What? • The selected writers will work 4 days to develop and adapt their script to the specificity of the location in collaboration with a mentor in order to prepare a shooting that is focused on low budget creativity and production values for the 2019 edition of Divan FF.
Last year we produced “LIFE AFTER”, a short film directed by Ivan Bakrac (Montenegro) and Lidjia Mojsovska (Macedonia), with a mixed cast and crew coming from all over the Balkans (Serbia, Albania, Romania)
NB: The working language of the application, workshop, meetings and events is English. The participation is free of charge. All film genres are accepted but we are mostly looking for scripts that can be set in our specific location and that include a strong sense of narrative and a proper “story”.
