A total of 17 co-productions received a share of $5.8m

The Council of Europe’s Eurimages Fund is to plough €4.54m ($5.8m) into 16 feature films and one documentary project.

Among the projects selected at the meeting, held from Oct 13-16 in Strasbourg, was Thomas Vinterberg’s The Commune (Kollektivet).

The upcoming film from the Danish director of Oscar-nominated The Hunt was recently shopped at Toronto by TrustNordisk

The story, scriped by Tobias Lindholm (The Hunt, A Hijacking), focuses on the clash between personal desires versus the solidarity and tolerance in a commune in the mid 1970s.

Cast has yet to be announced and shooting is expected to start later this year,

Eurimages will also support the new film from Corneliu Porumboiu, director of When Evening Falls on Bucharest or Metabolism.

His latest project, The Treasure (Comoara), began shooting on 15 October and follows two men as they face a series of misadventures in their quest to find a treasure. Wild Bunch handles international sales.
