The competition for submission of the programmes for this year`s sixteenth International TV Festival Bar has been finished today, and the parcel with a candidate`s programme should arrive to the address of the Festival Directorate (Jovana Tomasevica no. 57, 85000 Bar, Montenegro) until Tuesday, 20th September.
This year at the Festival, which will last from 26th to 30th October (Wednesday-Sunday) in the hotel ``Princess``, five competing categories will be represented.
Apart from the documentary, the feature programmes and programmes from the field of ecology and tourism, this year two new categories are introduced: the children`s programme and the short TV forms (music videos, commercials, experimental/artistic short films and animation).
From all submitted programmes the Selection Committee will choose the best ones, which will be entered to the official competition programme of the Festival.
As a reminder, this year a new supporting content will be organized - the Regional Content Providing Market. This project aims at creating a specific regional television market, a place where producers, producers of programmes and distributers of programme contents and buyers i.e. emitters of programme (international, national, local, cable, etc.) meet. The Regional Content Providing Market will be held within the Festival, on 28th and 29th October in the hotel ``Princess`` in Bar.
The Festival Directorate, which members are both Marija Perovic, an artistic director of the Festival and Ljiljana Djindjinovic, an administrative director, summons all media houses and TV creators who are interested in showing their projects at the Market, to submit their company profile or CV to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org until 20th September. A project description should contain the following details: names of the project, a producer, an author of the project, main actors, basic information (genre, form, duration), as well as the description of the project (3000-4000 characters).
All information on the Festival and on the Market, as well as the applications and propositions, can be found on the website www.tvfestbar.com.
