THE BEST FILM
in the Serbian Film (Serbia and Friends) Competition Programme @ FEST (Belgrade International Film Festival)
The Belgrade Victor for Best Film in this selection went to the film The Makavejev Case or Trial in a Movie Theater, directed by Goran Radovanović. ‘The Makavey Case is an excellent reconstruction of the milestone of the new Yugoslav Wave and an important moment in film history. By re-linking the present and the past, we can better understand the film and politics of Serbia and the world, as well as time and memory. The Jury admires and appreciates the courage of the director and his unique vision of reconstructing the images found in such a sensitive structure. Mr Goran Radovanović, we welcome you. Mr Dušan Makavejev, we miss you,” the jury explained.
