Each of the eight countries in the network – Albania, Cyprus, Greece, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania and Serbia – submitted two projects, and the requirement was that they must have secured financing from their home funding bodies and must have at least one co-production company attached from another country in the network.
