Last Stop Trieste (LST) is the work in progress section for documentary projects from Eastern Europe and Italy. Thanks to a strong network of partners, LST will present documentaries in advanced editing stage previously developed either at Ex-Oriente Film, BDC Discoveries by Balkan Documentary Center, Docu Rough Cut Boutique in Sarajevo or presented at the previous editions of When East Meets West, ZagrebDox PRO and Baltic Sea Docs.
The call for entries together with the application form will be directly sent via email by the LST partners to their former alumni. Selected documentary fine cuts will be screened to an exclusive panel of international sales agents, festival programmers and TV commissioning editors with the aim of enhancing their potential of being selected in top festivals and their chances of distribution and broadcasting. An international jury will deliver the special HBO EUROPE award (cash prize of 2.000 EUR) to the best project.
LST will take place alongside the Trieste Film Festival and When East Meets West on January 21-23, 2018. The programme will be directed by Rada Sesic (Sarajevo Film Festival). LST is organized by the Friuli Venezia Giulia Audiovisual Fund and the Trieste Film Festival, with the support of Creative Europe/MEDIA Programme, CEI – Central European Initiative and the Autonomous Region of Friuli Venezia Giulia.
