Talents Sarajevo unveils 2015 line-up

Names include actors, directors and producers.

The 2015 Talents Sarajevo has unveiled the 71 rising actors, directors, DoPs, film critics, producers and screenwriters from Southeast Europe and Southern Caucasus that will attend a week of masterclasses, panel discussions, networking and training opportunities.

The Sarajevo Film Festival’s training platform for emerging talent was founded in 2007 in collaboration with the Berlinale Talents program.

It has become a regional hub where aspiring film professionals train, meet and exchange ideas, and the number of people interested in participating in the six-day programme has been growing.

This year, a record number of 320 applications were made for participation in Talents Sarajevo. Film directors formed the majority among the applicants with 164 applications.

Pack&Pitch

The interest is also growing for participation in the Pack&Pitch segment of the program, with 55 applications received this year compared to 19 in 2014.

This segment of the programme is dedicated to film directors and producers and offers them a chance to learn - under professional mentoring - how to analyze and pitch their projects before selection juries, their colleagues and other film professionals.

In addition to Pack&Pitch, a new training programme named Film Stage Studio has drawn scriptwriters and directors seeking to improve their dialogue development skills through a process in which participants from all disciplines represented in Talents Sarajevo take part.

Over the past three years, the most applications for Talents Sarajevo were received from Romania, Turkey, Serbia, Croatia and Greece.

The average age of the Talents Sarajevo participants over the past three years has been 28 and 29.
