In the 2000s, workshops are set up in Serbia-Montenegro - which was still one country. The participants could come from all of the republics of ex-Yugoslavia.
In 2004, the Embassy and the French Cultural Centre created a workshop training course. In a country in total disarray, the trainees made 11 films which reflected their search for values. They created the Varan Belgrade Association and obtained financial support from the European Agency for Reconstruction to film the changes in post-war society.
In 2005, 8 films were made on that theme during an advanced programme.
In 2007, the workshop invited 12 future filmmakers from all the ex-Yugoslavian Republics, to make films on the subject of: “The Neighbours”. This workshop programme, today an inter-regional one, continues its production and training activities.
