New projects from Kutlug Ataman, Bogdan Mustata, Nana Ekvtimishvili and Simon Gross among the 14 titles.

The Turkish film industry, buoyed by the Palme d’Or win for Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s Winter Sleep, dominates Sarajevo Film Festival’s upcoming co-production market, CineLink (Aug 20-23).

The selection committee has shortlisted a total of 14 projects from over 200 submissions from 18 countries across South-Eastern Europe. These have been split between the CineLink and CineLink Plus sections.

Turkey has four projects across the two strands included Hilal, Feza And Other Planets by Kutlug Ataman (The Lamb) and producer Emre Yeksan’s directing debut The Gulf.

Romania has three projects including In Between by Bogdan Mustata (last year in SFF competition with Wolf) and Lemonade, produced by Cristian Mungiu and directed by Ioana Uricaru (Tales From The Golden Age).

Nana Ekvtimishvili and Simon Gross, who directed 2012 festival hit In Bloom,will present their new project My Happy Family.

Additional titles will be added to the selection in the upcoming weeks.
