About BFM 2018



BFM Director
As it happens in the movies, we yearn for fresh starts and new beginnings. Last year’s successful launch of the Balkan Film Market compels us to not only to start over, but also to maintain the high standards already set in place. Building on previous achievements and moving towards new challenges is what every creator strives for. We strive to provide a venue for scouting and discovery of new talent.
Our ambition is to build bridges and lay out a platform on which content creators can promote and develop projects by facilitating a value exchange network. BMF will also serve as a hub enabling a regional flow of development, production, and distribution.
It is demanding to program a multi-faceted industry market that effectively matches authentic projects with producers and distributor chains that seek original vocation. We focus on regional projects that find it hard to find support elsewhere and on relevant stories driven by characters that wider audiences must learn about.
Our effort in developing workshops, several pitch formats, elaborate and professional panels, has at its core, our desire to share concerns, ideas, solutions, and finally, to eventually share success.
