Its next, 4th , edition will take place in Thessaloniki during our next Festival in November 2008. Mediterranean and Balkan producers with a feature film script are given the chance to meet a new network of financiers, coproducers and leading industry specialists. CROSSROADS introduces producers to a variety of industry professionals from all over the world. The programme is varied and provides the opportunity to meet, formally and informally, distributors, broadcasters, sales agents and consultants. CROSSROADS’ goal is to support the producers of feature-length fiction film projects that contain a link to the Mediterranean and Balkan regions. Qualifying features will be produced or co-produced by a country in this area or are movies that contain story elements based in this region. Marie Pierre Macia, the Artistic Director, together with the team of CROSSROADS , is looking for featurelength fiction film projects that contain a link to the Mediterranean or Balkan region. They should either be produced or co-produced by a country within these regions or contain elements in the story that link them to these regions. Projects should have a producer attached and could be in all stages of production. There should be a complete screenplay. Our main focus in the selection procedure will be on projects that present a high possibility of being realized, combining this quality with artistic elements.
