The core event for the Kosovar film industry, PriFORUM, is also organising its tenth edition and will run from 19-22 July, retaining all of its main components. Seven projects from the region will participate in the Best Pitch Competition and will receive support in partnership with EAVE. Furthermore, the third edition of Prishtina Rendezvous will help distributors and sales agents from Europe to find out more about current Balkan film projects. Finally, PriFORUM is pressing on with its Work in Progress and Script Development sections alongside panel discussions, master classes, meetings and training programmes.
