SARAJEVO: Igor Drljača, whose previous feature film The Waiting Room (TimeLapse Pictures) premiered at the Locarno Film Festival, has started postproduction on his third feature film Tabija (working title). The project was awarded the Eurimages Co-production Award at Rotterdam Film Festival’s Cinemart Co-production Market in 2014.
This unlikely love story between two disillusioned teens set in present-day Sarajevo is produced by SCCA/pro.ba’s Adis Đapo and Amra Bakšić Čamo, and Timelapse Pictures’ Albert Shin and Igor Drljača, in coproduction with Borga Dorter.
The budget of the film is set at 900,000 EUR and the film has been supported by the Ministry of Culture and Sports of Sarajevo Canton and Film Fund in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Telefilm and Ontario Creates in Canada, and by Eurimages, Creative Europe MEDIA for development, and the Hubert Balls Fund for development.
Tabija was shot between 31 August and 10 October 2019 in and around Sarajevo, and it is expected to premiere in 2020.
