CANNES: The Serbian Film Centre and the French CNC have signed an audiovisual cooperation agreement in Cannes on the exchange of professional experience and know-how. The French will provide specialists on audiovisual legislation, film archives and anti-piracy.
Boban Jevtic, head of the Serbian Film Centre said: “It’s a step on both sides toward a convention on bi-lateral cooperation at ministerial level. French films were always popular in Serbia. There are strong historical and cultural ties between our two countries.”
Two Serbian projects have recently received French support via the Cinema du Monde programme, Srdan Golubovic’s new project Father to be produced by Bas Celik productions and Stefan Arsenijevic’s new project Strahinje to be produced by Art and Popcorn.
