with Amra Baksic Camo, Anna Seifert-Speck, Danis Tanovic

Regardless of budget, some films manage to reach their full potential through the creativity and resourcefulness of the filmmaker. Beyond the use of non-actors or refraining from fancy sets and locations, what key elements should filmmakers consider when working with limited budgets? Producer Anna Seifert-Speck, of acclaimed British indie WEEKEND, and the director and producer of the Berlinale Competition film AN EPISODE IN THE LIFE OF AN IRON PICKER, Danis Tanović and Amra Baksič Camo, discuss how they managed great creative success while working with micro-budgets.
