FILMLAND BITOLA PROJECT PROMOTED
The Filmland Bitola Project was promoted in an eight-minute video material at the Epinal Hotel in Bitola yesterday. The project is aimed at attracting film companies to make films in Bitola. The video presented the natural resources and beauties and historical benchmarks of the city, accompanied with Macedonian old original music. The idea is to present Macedonia as a country with high qualities for development of film industry.
The initiators of the project are Bitola Mayor Vladimir Taleski and Macedonian film workers whose aim is to make Bitola a film centre. Meetings with the German film production Bavaria and Russian Mosfilm have been scheduled. The filmed advertising material presents places in the country that can be readily used for filmmaking, and Bitola is planned as the centre of this activity. Construction of facilities and adaptations of parts of the Bitola barracks for the filmmakers’ needs are expected.
MD: Let's hope they can attract some great films to be shot in Macedonia!
