Following the closing of the 7th Sarajevo Talent Campus Call for Entries, the participants have been selected to take part in this year’s edition of the STC Programme dedicated to young filmmakers from the countries of Southeast Europe.

The Selection Committee has chosen 70 participants from the following countries: Armenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Georgia, Greece, Hungary, Kosovo, Macedonia, Moldavia Romania, Serbia, Slovenia and Turkey.

Sarajevo Talent Campus, launched in cooperation with the Berlin International Film Festival and the Berlinale Talent Campus, aims to connect young film professionals from Southeast Europe with established film professionals, to inform them and bring them closer to regional and international film industry. During the seven-day programme, young film professionals are provided with the opportunity to exchange their viewpoints and ideas. Sarajevo Talent Campus, designed to fill in the gap between film school education and practical working experience, encourages collaborative filmmaking – developing, financing, producing, and distributing short and feature-length films together with fellow-filmmakers.

The high-quality programme consisting of a series of workshops, discussions and screenings, together with the presence of renowned film professionals as the STC lecturers, are the reason for the increasing interest of young filmmakers from Southeast Europe to take part in this programme. The best confirmation of this is the record number of applications received this year – the total of 309.
