    COTTBUS: The Croatian/Serbian project Closed to the Public, directed by Vanja Juranic and produced by Damir Teresak for Croatia’s Maxima Film and Nikolina Vucetic-Zecevic for Serbia’s Biberche, was pitched at the 2020 online edition of connecting cottbus, running 4-6 November 2020.

    The 90-minute drama has a budget of 762,000 EUR, with 641 EUR already in place. The film is supported by the Croatian Audiovisual Centre, Film Center Serbia, and Creative Europe MEDIA. The producers are seeking coproducers, distributors and sales agents.
