Call for entries: Rough Cut Boutique 2012

Sarajevo Film Festival and the Balkan Documentary Center are currently accepting entries for the second Rough Cut Boutique workshop for documentary filmmakers.

The idea behind the SFF/BDC Rough Cut Boutique is to offer coaching, expert advice and access to decision-makers that can have crucial influence on moving the projects forward in their final stage.

After the very successful start in 2011, the second RCB will take place between 9 and 12 July 2012.

A Promising Platform for Documentary Makers

  • feature-length documentary films (60 min and more)
  • in a rough cut stage
  • for which there is a potential international and regional market.
