True Stories Market Research Funding

Quote from filmkommentaren post in August: … thinking of the many documentary adventures I take with me from the Sarajevo Film Festival: To be part of the training team of representatives from ngo’s and human rights organizations was the experience for me. Engaged, committed people who every day deal with human beings who suffer from the consequences of the wars in the 1990’es – and try to help them. Respect!

The festival now makes a call – deadline January 31 – for proposals from filmmakers, who want to collaborate with the organisations and people mentioned to make the stories presented at the festival into films. A €3000 grant is given for further research followed by project development and presentation at the upcoming Cinelink Industry Days at the festival.

The call is open for “Production company or filmmaker coming from the following countries: Albania, Armenia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Greece, Georgia, Hungary, Kosovo, Macedonia, Malta, Moldova, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, Turkey.

All details are available through the link below. The same goes for the visual presentation/pitch of the projects. Check it out:
