Previous Romanian projects that have participated at the Docu Rough Cut Boutique include Holy Father (Sarajevo FF 2020), a documentary directed by our colleague Andrei Dăscălescu and Toto and his sisters (Tribeca Film Festival) directed by Alexander Nanau.

Docu Rough Cut Boutique remains committed to supporting and promoting great, emerging talents from Southeast Europe and Southern Caucasus and we strive to do it even more in these challenging times. After a lengthy process of selection, we would like to shine the light on the new slate of projects. Five projects have been selected for this year’s selection and in solidarity with Ukraine, Docu Rough Cut Boutique in cooperation with Sarajevo Film Festival will support a sixth project coming from Ukraine to participate in the second and third session of the programme.
