SCCA/pro.ba is a film and TV production company, established in 1998. After being strongly rooted in production of art videos and art installations, pro.ba started film production in 2001, with a short film “First Death Experience” by Aida Begic (Cannes Film Festival, Cinefondation 2001).
From the beginning we have been producing documentaries, fiction and TV programme. Our films have participated and won awards in festivals around the globe including Berlinale, Venice Film Festival, Cannes Film Festival, Rotterdam Film Festival, Locarno Film Festival, IDFA, Clermont-Ferrand Film Festival, Gothenburg Film Festival, Sarajevo Film Festival. In 2013, when pro.ba was celebrating its 15th anniversary, Danis Tanovic’s film “An Episode in the Life of Iron Picker” was shown in Berlin Film Festival, and it won The Grand Jury Award, Silver Bear for the best actor and a Special Mention by the ecumenical jury.
The year 2016 we started with a premiere of the film “Mama” by Vlado Skafar in the Bright Future programme of the Rotterdam Film Festival, which we coproduced (the producer of this film is the production company Gustaf Film from Ljubljana).
This year’s Berlinale hosted the world premiere of Danis Tanovic’s new film “Death in Sarajevo”, wich has won Grand Jury Prize and FIPRESCI award by International Federation of Film Critics.
Since 2001 pro.ba has developed much original TV content. We have produced over 250 hours of TV content so far.
“Kuhinja” (Kitchen), an alternative cultural TV magazine, with its 118 hours of content, brought to attention a whole generation of artists and cultural workers. It also raised the issue of the role of culture and art in a society such as ours.
“Ču Dzo Am Show”, a top chart of unpopular singles, brought radio presenters to the TV. It opened a space for a different music, unfortunately only for a short period of time.
“Domaća lektira”, a documentary series, consisting of 25 episodes, was a result of the project “Citaj BiH”. The series dealt with Bosnian literature from the second half of the 20th century.
“Najbolja emisija za mlade” was an educational TV show for teenagers.
“Tales of Transition” is a documentary series, shown on Aljazeera Balkans and BHTV.
We also produced a documentary series “Everyday Heroes” for Aljazeera Balkans. It is a series about people from our region, who deal with everyday life by doing what they believe in. Their projects, their lives, their stories will not change the world over night, but will make everyday life more bearable and more human.
