VICTORIA ABRIL COMING TO MANAKI FESTIVAL
On the 30th anniversary of this year International Cinematographers’ Film Festival “Manaki Brothers”, beside the three already announced Academy Award winners, Victoria Abril, the great European and the World star is also coming. As Labina Mitevska, the Director of the Festival said, she has been working on Abril’s coming for nine months.
The famous Spanish actress will arrive to Bitola on September 25th, and stay until October 1st. Bringing great stars to the Festival was one of the main ideas of Mitevska, hoping to make the Festival widely recognized and out of the so far closed society of cinematographers. “Very few people know about the Festival, mainly from this branch. Coming of the great star will open doors and enable the Festival to bring other great names in future, what is of great importance for its international rating,” said Labina Mitevska.
This years jury was also announced on the yesterday’ press conference. It will decide about the awards, the Golden, the Silver and the Bronze Camera 300. The President of the Jury is Peter Suschitzky, one of the two winners of the Golden Camera 300 for his life-time achievements.
