The Berlinale Series Market Selects is part of the European Film Market. It is dedicated to TV series and offers industry experts, right holders, buyers, and creatives a platform for discussing current developments in the world of series.
The programme will take place online, in parallel with the European Film Market, also taking place online, from 10 to 17 February. The event will include talk shows, showcases by international production companies, streaming platform and series events, online screenings, and a curated selection of high-quality series on the market, the Croatian Audiovisual Centre (HAVC) said.
Among the 14 selected projects, there are also series from Brazil, South Africa, and Israel.
The producer and one of the creators of the series, Nebojša Taraba, said that entering that market was a huge personal success, but they were even happier that this confirmed the international success of Croatian drama series such as “The Paper” (Novine), “Success” (Uspjeh), “The Last Socialist Artefact” (Područje bez signala), were no longer an exception but becoming a rule.
“Croatian television productions are not only the most successful in the Adria region but beyond, I dare say in Central and Southeast Europe,” he said.
The eighth edition of the Berlinale Series Market (BSM) will take place from 14 to 16 February with an exceptionally international and diverse selection of series, according to European Film Market according to director Dennis Ruh.
“The Silence” is a six-part TV series based on Hedl’s trilogy, which is described as a combination of police procedural novels and political thrillers.
The series will start broadcasting on Croatian Radio Television (HRT) on 7 March. It is produced by Drugi Plan and HRT and co-produced by Beta Film, Star Media, and OLL.TV, ZDF/ARTE. Series creators are Nebojša Taraba and Miodrag Sila (Drugi Plan), with the screenplay written by Marjan Alčevski. The series also stars Kseniya Mishina, Goran Bogdan and Darko Milas.
Congratulations Dalibor, and all the team behind the production of “The Silence”!
