Sarajevo stages Talent Campus

Fest adopts Berlin event

BERLIN — The first ever Talent Campus will be held in Bosnia-Herzegovina next month as part of the Sarajevo Film Festival, which runs Aug. 17-25.

After launching at the Berlinale in 2003, the international educational platform was quickly adapted for other film festivals around the globe, with Campuses taking place in Cape Town, New Delhi and Buenos Aires.

The Sarajevo Talent Campus, which runs Aug. 20-25, will have a regional focus and invite up-and-coming filmmakers from 12 countries in southeastern Europe, including Albania, Bosnia, Serbia, Greece and Turkey, to apply.

The Talent Campus invites established directors, writers, producers and cinematographers to lecture and discuss the world of film with aspiring young moviemakers.

Next year’s Talent Campus in Berlin, which is currently accepting applications, will highlight “emotionality and film” and explore questions such as what producers need to know when it comes to selling a story and how cinematographers, composers and editors develop sympathy for a character, move viewers to tears or create suspense in a thriller.

The Berlinale Talent Campus will run Feb. 9-14.
