This year’s Sarajevo Film Festival (Aug 12-20) is introducing an inaugural Drama forum to its CineLink industry strand, with the goal of encouraging discussion and ultimately bolstering TV production in the region.
CineLink Drama 2016 will see producers, talent and broadcasters from the region and further afield taking part in sessions, lectures and case studies that focus on the current state of high-end TV programmes, and what can be done to integrate the area’s film and TV industries.
Six series in development will also be presented [scroll down to the see the list], with top talent attached including Danis Tanović (Death In Sarajevo) and Ognjen Sviličić (Nightlife). European broadcasters, distributors and SVoD and VoD operators will be in Sarajevo to see presentation pitches, and to take part in one-on-one meetings with producers.
“This has been on the table for a while,” says
