share info
One of the most important events in Dutch film professionals’ calendar, the Holland Film Meeting (HFM) has hosted the 2016 edition of its Co-Production Platform from 22 to 25 of September, bringing together an exciting line-up of international projects in development, along with a catalogue of local titles also in development, set aside in a new section named BoostNL. All projects – a total of 33, including the ones included in the BoostNL section – were eligible for the Co-Production Platform’s prizes: The Cam-a-lot & Filmmore Cinema Emerging Talent Prize for Best Project (valued at €10,000 in camera and post-production facilities) and The WarnierPosta Prize (worth €5,000 in audio post-production facilities at one of the WarnierPosta studios).

Balkan titles had a particularly strong presence this year, with projects from Romania, Croatia, Bulgaria and Serbia grabbing everyone’s attention.

The Serbian project The Religion of the Night Walks, produced by Jelena Mitrovic and directed by Nikola Lezaic was the winner of The Cam-a-lot & Filmmore Cinema Emerging Talent Prize for Best Project.

Romania’s Marcian Lazar (Alex Film Echipamente) is currently looking for co-producers for Imaculat. The feature, written by Monica Stan and set to be directed by Brussels-based director Kenneth Mercken, focuses on a young girl who tries to save her boyfriend from drug addiction and ends up caught in the vice herself. Partially set in a rehab clinic, the film is, in the director’s words, a reflection on the influence of group dynamics in the quest for identity. The CNC Romania is already attached to this €850,000 project.

Director Simon Bogojevic Narath and producer Ira Cecic from Croatian outfit Kinorama pitched Illyricvm, a historical drama set in 36 BC, which centres on a young Liburnian shepherd who joins the Roman legionary army passing through his region. Narath, a filmmaker with a background in fine art, is particularly concerned with the film’s historical accuracy yet is willing to imbue the project with a slow pace – which is certainly an intriguing choice, given the potentially violent background against which the plot is set. With the support of the Croatian Audiovisual Center already guaranteed, the project is looking for co-producers and hopes to begin principal photography in autumn 2017.

Producing, writing and directing: Bulgaria’s proactive Maya Vitkova does it all in her new project, Love, in which three stories have mingled and merged into one project that will work both as a feature film and as three separate shorts. €25,000 are already in place for this €1.2 million project already supported by the Bulgarian National Film Center.

The Religion of Night Walks is an ambitious project by Serbian producer Jelena Mitrovic (Film House Baš Čelik), partially based on the family story of scriptwriter and director Nikola Lezaic. The project about an Iranian-based Serbian engineer who gets a visit from his wife and child after a long absence due to professional reasons is at the development stage, looking for partners and shooting locations. Film Center Serbia is already on board.
