Croatian applicants receive 55 000 euro support for single project development

Creative Europe – MEDIA Desk has announced the list of approved projects after the first deadline for calls for single project development (EACEA 18/2015), which includes two Croatian production companies who have been approved a total of 55 000 euro in subsidies. This places Croatia 15th out of 28 countries who are eligible for support based on this deadline, and Croatia has the same number of approved projects as Great Britain, Sweden, Portugal and Ireland.

There were a total of 370 applications from 32 member states of the MEDIA sub-programme, of which 56 projects were approved. Funds were approved for Diary of Pauline P., produced by Jaka Produkcija d.o.o. and the creative documentary Who Framed Kaktus Kid from Nukleus Film d.o.o.

Diary of Pauline P. is based on the children’s book written by Sanja Polak, and has been granted 30 000 euro in funding. ‘The film is based on the diary of a girl. From a critical perspective and comical situation, she talks about her problems regarding friendship, love, loyalty and family. The story is irresistible and funny and has good dramatic potential. The main character is an optimistic girl who at the same time is intelligent, innovative, stubborn and lovable. The story takes place in the real world with a touch of “magic”. The development plan is also well presented and caters to the needs of the project. The budget is adequate and coincides with the activities of the developmental strategy,’ states the decision.

Who Framed Kaktus Kid has been granted a total of 25 000 euro. ‘The theme of this creative documentary has great potential, and thanks to the different levels of “perspectives”, the film can be attractive to a wider audience. The strength of expression through drawing is very current, and the story itself represents an interesting excerpt from our not-so-distant past. The writing style very precisely illustrates research, information and emotions. The creative team is convincing, and previous experience within the international documentary scene affirms the possibility for the company to further develop and produce films for international markets,’ the decision states.
