10th SKOPJE FILM FESTIVAL COMING UP
Skopje citizens’ favourite event, the Skopje Film Festival will be held on 16-25 March. The organizers have maintained the concept of the festival to show new discoveries and the classics of the world modern film from the previous year. The main programme will includes the likes of “Fountain” by Darren Aronofsky; “Marie Antoinette” by Sofia Coppola; “Apocalypto” by Mel Gibson; “The Black Dahlia” by Brian de Palma; “Summer Palace” by Ye Lou, a Chinese controversial film once banned from screening in China, and regional films “Seadm i po” (Seven and a Half) by Miroslav Momcilovic, “Volim te” (I Love You) by Dalibor Matanic. Unlike last year, workshops and guests have been announced with a workshop on Scores in Film led by Nathan Larson and Nina Persson from the Cardigans provoking great interest.
Besides the main programme, Anima Fest is dedicated to the animated film, and Sound and Fury to documentary films dedicated to music. Cooperation with the Edinburgh Film Festival and complete cross-section of influential Bill Plymton’s work have been announced.
