For a second consecutive year Macedonia will be featured at the 8th edition of Four River Film Festival which runs June 23-27 in Karlovac, Croatia. The festival, dedicated to highschool film and young film lovers, will be attended by 4 teenagers from Macedonia: Anastasija Boshkoska, Lidija Jovanovska, Sofija Sinadinovska and Kristijan Jankuloski. Moreover, “The murder of a planet”, a one-minute film by Lidija Jovanovska student at “Georgi Dimitrov” – Skopje was selected to compete against 70 other films submitted from all over the world as part of the official competition. Being both original and educational, through short scenes and dialogues, “The murder of a planet” focuses on the significance of water as an essential life source.
Three Macedonian shorts (“Bardo” by Marija Apchevska, “Audition Material” by Gjorce Stavreski and “The Man in the Habit of Hitting me on the Head With An Umbrella” by Vardan Tozija ) are also scheduled to be screened as part of the “Focus of Macedonia” organized by Giffoni Macedonia in cooperation with the Macedonian Film Agency.
Within the festival framework, the team of Giffoni Macedonia will also present two workshops: Workshop on One-minute films and a Photo Story Workshop.
This is yet another opportunity for a successful promotion of the Macedonian cinematographic output as well as a unique chance which would greatly contribute to the promotion of film education among young generations as well as help them enrich their experience.
