DRCB Expands into two workshops

Docu Rough Cut Boutique is a joint programme created by Sarajevo Film Festival and Balkan Documentary Center. It is focused exclusively on documentary films from the region of South East Europe and Caucasus, which are currently in post-production.

For the first time in 2017 the progamme will include two working modules, in late June in Sofia with editing tutorials, group sessions and individual meetings for the selected projects and culmination in August in Sarajevo with additional feedback sessions, closed screenings and presentation in front of CineLink Industry guests.

To: 5 carefully selected projects from the Region of 20 countries (Austria, Azerbaijan, Albania, Armenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Moldova, Malta, Serbia, Montenegro, Kosovo, Slovenia, Georgia, Turkey, Greece, Macedonia, Romania and Hungary)

How do we work: Within the friendly and closed environment, during intensive group and individual sessions, the selected teams and mentors are focused on in-depth engagement on the quality of the material in the rough-cut stage.
