'Srbenka' Funded by MEDIA Sub-programme


Director Nebojša Slijepčević’s project, pitched at ZagrebDox Pro 2015, was awarded 25,000 Euro for development.

The documentary project Srbenka, directed by Nebojša Slijepčević (Restart), pitched at ZagrebDox Pro 2015, was awarded funds by the MEDIA Sub-programme. The funds amounting to 25,000 Euro were allocated at the public call for individual project development, festivals and continuous training.

Srbenka is a film about bullying the children of other nationalities. The focus is on the generation born after the war and the way they cope with the war trauma. This very important topic is trying to explore nationalism in central Europe and in today’s Balkans. The applicant is aware of the local, regional and global level of understanding this project. The protagonists are irresistible, the creative approach is brilliant, and the project’s focus is well considered, across different potential circles, with a universal message, says the explanation of the funding decision.

More information about the project is available on Restart’s official website.
