One of Us Selected for Docu Rough Cut Boutique Programme


The winning project of ZagrebDox Pro 2018 is one of the five selected for Industry programme at the 24th Sarajevo Film Festival

Docu Rough Cut Boutique is organised into two working modules. In late June in Sofia with editing tutorials, group sessions and individual meetings for the selected projects and culminates in August in Sarajevo with additional feedback sessions, open screenings and presentation at the CineLink Industry Days.

“Sometimes we have to make difficult decisions – to choose the best five while there are more potentially good, strong projects. But we have only five places! We have chosen those which impressed us with their amazing, unusual stories; with remarkable access to protagonists as well as sharp directors’ point of view. In our opinion, these five projects are in the biggest need to zoom out and see the bigger picture of their topic, to re-visit their material in the company of documentary experts and discuss openly and thoroughly the best possible narrative structure. This is the way to create internationally appealing, remarkable documentaries.” Rada Šešić and Martichka Bozhilova, Directors of Docu Rough Cut Boutique.

Đuro Gavran’s project One of Us, produced by the Croatian company Pipser, won the HBO Europe Award, a diploma and 2000 EUR for further development at this year’s ZagrebDox Pro workshop.

Apart from Croatia, projects in the post-production phase from Bulgaria (The Magic Life of V), Serbia (Diary of a Serious Offender), Slovenia (Daughter of Camorra) and Romania (The Chalice) have been selected for this year’s edition of the programme.
