Sarajevo Film Festival Newsletter

    CineLink project, the backbone of the festival's Industry Section, is a development and financing platform for carefully selected local feature projects destined for European co-production.
    With average conversion rate of its selected projects from development to production of over 60% in the past 8 years, CineLink grew into one of the most successful development and financing platforms in Europe. Films developed trough CineLink are now a part of prestigious festivals selections and distribution catalogues around the world. Next to ADRIENN PAL by Agnes Kocsis and TUESDAY, AFTER CHRISTMAS by Radu Muntean being selected for Cannes' Un Certain Regard last year, we are especially proud that HONEY by Semih Kaplanoglu and Florin Serban's IF I WANT TO WHISTLE, I WHISTLE scooped both Golden and Silver Bears at the 60th Berlinale.
    Selection and diversification in development are central to this success, while focus on local productions with international potential, emerging talent and modern cinematic language proved essential to the program's raising profile in the film industry.
    New call for entries is now open. Deadline for projects submission is March 1st 2011.
