Sarajevo Film Festival’s co-production market CineLink, which will take place during the final days of the festival’s 21st edition (Aug 14-22), has unveiled its full selection.
Nine projects have been added to the previously announced eight, including three guest projects from Qatar, Syria and Russia.
The selection targets projects from established regional names, which are in advanced stage of development and financing.
The line-up includes Georgian director Tinatin Kajrishvili’s Manji, the filmmaker’s second feature after 2014 Berlinale title Brides.
Also featured is A Ballad, the third film by Bosnian film-maker Aida Begić, who won awards at Cannes with Snow in 2008 and Children Of Sarajevo in 2012.
Coming from Turkey is Hamarat Apartment, the new feature by Hüseyin Karabey, whose feature debut My Marlon And Brando received the Heart of Sarajevo for Best Actress for Ayca Damgaci in 2008, and whose last outing Come To My Voice won the CNC Award at CineLink in 2009.
Another Turkish project taking part is Iguana Tokyo, the second film by Kaan Müjdeci, known for 2014 Venice prize-winner Sivas.
Romanian producer Marcian Lazar, known for When I Want To Whistle, I Whistle and Loverboy will be in Sarajevo with The Professor by first-time director Radu Dragomir.
Croatian writer Ognjen Sviličić (These Are The Rules) has teamed up with Macedonian director Sergej Stanojkovski (Contact) for Life Begins (aka Freestyle).
The selection is rounded out by two guest projects as part of Sarajevo’s cooperation with the Doha Film Institute (DFI): Parijat by Hend Fakhroo (Qatar), and The Taste Of Apples Is Red by Ehab Tarabieh (Syria-US-Palestine-Qatar).
Georgia-Russia co-production Honeymoon Flight, the fourth film by writer-director Rezo Gigineishili, is also a guest project.
