  • Entre Chien et Loup and Kwassa Films join forces. Entre Chien et Loup, the company which was set up 30 years ago by Diana Elbaum and is active in audiovisual production, and young company Kwassa Films, founded by Annabella Nezri, team up. The two companies join forces and skills sets to increase levels of cooperation between their various professionals and allow them to rapidly evolve with new market opportunities: film, television, the Internet and virtual reality. Kwassa Films stands out with its pool of young writers and directors, and will rely on the knowhow and contacts of Entre Chien et Loup to accelerate the production process for its projects, whilst Entre Chien et Loup broadens its policy for supporting young talent to include producers. Diana Elbaum and Annabella Nezri have just teamed up to launch Boost Camp. The initiative aims to accelerate the development of films or series created by women, and to support them so that they don’t lose touch with the market due to the fact that their projects take longer to develop than those of their male counterparts. The first session kicks off in March 2017.

  • ALL ALONE by Bobo Jelcic, producer: EAVE graduate Zedenka Gold, co-producer: EAVE participant Alem Babic is in preparation. The film is an intimate character study and a social drama about a divorced father struggling with the legal labyrinth without breaking the parental bond. The story written by Jelcic focuses on a divorced father who starts exparte proceedings to spend more time with his daughter, but enters the Kafkaesque world of a social services system in meltdown. His fierce love for his child is the source of his misery and of his greatest joy as well. Zdenka Gold is producing through Croatia’s Spiritus Movens Production in coproduction with Alem Babić through Dokument Sarajevo from Bosnia and Herzegovina. The project received a production grant from the Croatian Audiovisual Centre and a coproduction grant from Fondacija na kinematografiju Sarajevo.
