    Two projects will have the opportunity to attend the coproduction forum at the Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival, and the European Short Pitch, scriptwriting workshop in residency and a coproduction forum, and one will receive the newly launched Baltic Producers MEDIA Award initiated by the Creative Europe MEDIA Offices in Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.
