Albanian Film Center finances 30 new projects for 2015
9 January 2015
share info
2014 was a quite fruitful year for Albanian film industry. Beside the awards Bota won at significant European film festivals, 2014 marked the change of the Head of the the Albanian Film Center, with former president and founder of Tirana International Film Festival, Ilir Butka, being named the Center΄s new President. 
What was really significant though, was the country΄s entry (along with Montenegro) to the MEDIA programme, giving the chance to these two small film industries to participate at the programme΄s annual production calls.

One of the Albanian Film Center΄s last announcements, were the films approved for financing for 2015.
With the record-number of about 80 film projects submitted, the Center decided a budget growth of 35% for these new projects. After the evaluation process, 30 were approved for financing, in the Board΄s last meeting on December: 10 feature films, 9 short films, 4 documentaries, 3 animation films and 4 projects in developement.

Interesting is the fact that 18 of those 30 final projects are first-time filmmakers΄ projects, while 6, were submitted by female filmmakers. Also, the Center enriched its production companies catalogue with 48 new additions. The catalogue will be presented at the upcoming Berlnale (5-15/2).
