FEST FORWARD Coproduction Market Announces Lineup


BELGRADE: Ten Serbian and ten foreign projects have been selected for the third edition of FEST FORWARD, the industry segment of the Belgrade International Film Festival – FEST, unspooling from 24 February to 5 March 2017.

The selected Serbian projects, which will be presented to both foreign and domestic producers, distributors, sales agents, festival representatives and film fund directors on 4 and 5 March 2017, are feature and documentary films in various stages of development.
