SARAJEVO: Serbian writer/director Milica Tomović, who won the Heart of Sarajevo for her short film Tranzicija (EED Productions, 2016), is returning to the Sarajevo Film Festival with her debut feature project Celts. The project was selected for the CineLink Co-production Market (14-16 August 2018), running in the framework of Sarajevo Film Festival’s CineLink Industry Days.
Milica Tomović tells the story of the end of Yugoslavia and the loss of identity, through one family that has gathered for a child’s costume birthday party. The family drama with elements of a comedy portrays three generations of a dysfunctional family through their daily routines. They meet for the celebration and end up learning more about themselves and the world surrounding them than they had hoped for.
The project is a Serbian/Montenegrin coproduction between EED Productions and Meander Film, and it has been supported by Film Center Serbia with 194,600 EUR, which is almost half of the estimated budget of 402,280 EUR. “We are hoping to find coproducers from ex-Yugoslavia countries so that actors from those countries can be cast in the film. We also hope to find a postproduction partner from Western Europe”, producer Vladimir Vasiljević from EED Productions told FNE.
Shooting is planned for the spring of 2019.
Rights are available for the whole world. No sales agent is attached to the project yet.
