Serbian project rewarded in Nyon
Within the framework of the Focus section dedicated to Serbia, the film project MERRY CHRISTMAS, YIWU by Mladen Kovacevic was awarded the "visions sud est" prize with an amount of 10 000 Swiss Francs. This prize is aimed at supporting a Serbian documentary film project still in development or in post-production. The Jury of the visions sud est award wishes to underline that they have been confronted with a difficult choice due to the high level of the selection and the diversity of the gazes and topics. The project that made them believe to the power of an artistic point of view and to the capacity to reflect an image of ourselves, with lightness, is the one that will for sure become a subtle film on a Chinese reality.
In addition, within the framework of the FOCUS section, open to the general public, 18 films produced in Serbia have been presented.
