Film Culture in Serbia and Montenegro

Last year, goEast made closer contact with the film scene in Serbia and Montenegro. This was motivated by an invitation to a screenplay festival in Vrnjacka Banja. A number of films from the goEast programme could be seen in the Serbian city. In turn, the Vrnjacka Banja Festival shall be presenting Milos Radovic’s comedy FALL INTO PARADISE as one goEast’s specials. Serbia and Montenegro is remarkably well- represented at goEast 2005: two competition entries, (PARTY and PRETTY DYANA), the winner of the Hessian Film Prize RED COLOURED GREY TRUCK as a non-competing entry within the competition, LOST AND FOUND- episode FABULOUS VERA, Emir Kusturica’s new film LIFE IS A MIRACLE as a highlight, and short films from the Film Academy in Belgrad as film school competition entries. Enough of a reason to take a closer look at the current film culture situation in this country which, as we can see from the recent establishment of a film centre, is in constant motion. The following people shall be taking part in a discussion: Borislav Andjelic (FIPRESCI Serbia and Montenegro), Aleksandar Davic (Director), Ivan Karl (Journalist), Srdjan Kolijevic (Director and Screenplay Writer), Boris Mitic, (Director); Milan Nikodijevic (Director of the Vrnjacka Banja Festival) and Dinko Tucakovic (Director and Film Archive Belgrad). Martin Blaney (Screen International) shall be leading the discussion.
This fall, together with Metropolis Kino (Hamburg), and a movie theatre in Berlin, goEast shall be participating with a film programme- within goEast’s half-time- in the “Cultural Days Serbia and Montenegro 2005 in Germany”, organized by the Federal Foreign Office.

Festival Centre Villa Clementine: 09.04 / 2 p.m.
