    ZAGREB: Producer Ankica Jurić Tilić from Kinorama is currently developing The Staffroom/Zbornica, the debut feature of Sonja Tarokić, set for shooting in autumn 2016.

    Despite her lack of experience, Anamarija starts her first year as a school counsellor with much enthusiasm, having grown tired of her two-year-long maternity leave. However, confronted with the restrictions of the school system and surrounded by burnt-out and apathetic teachers, she wages her own war against the problem of the history teacher, unaware that in doing so she is gradually becoming like the rest of her colleagues in the staffroom.

    Tarokić is currently writing the third draft of the script. She already has the leading actress, Marina Redžepović, and the DoP, Danko Vučinović.

    The budget is 1,220,015 EUR of which 84,414 EUR is already in place, Jurić Tilić told FNE. The Croatian Audiovisual Centre is supporting the film with a script development grant of 4,619 EUR and a project development grant of 19,795 EUR. Kinorama is contributing its own investment development and production funding of 60,000 EUR. The project is participating at the Torino Script&Pitch Film Lab 2015.

    A seven week shooting schedule is set for autumn 2016. The film will be domestically distributed by 2i Film beginning in May 2017.
