Macedonian Children Got A Chance To Meet Actor Richard Gere


The 2014 edition of the largest children’s film festival in the world “Giffoni Experience”, taking place July 18-27 in Giffoni Valle Piana, with the support of the Macedonian Ministry of Culture and the Macedonian Film Agency welcomes twelve teenagers from Macedonia as part of the festival’s children jury.

The festival is known for its film celebrity guests, and the children from Macedonia once again managed to stand out during the meetings and discussions with the guests, actively promoting its country.

The actor Richard Gere was met with a crowded Sala “Truffaut”, and Martina Velickovska was one of the five children jurors who got a chance to ask him some questions.  The actor responded eagerly, praising Macedonia and the warmth and beauty of our country, recalling his visit to the country from 15 years ago. Dario Todorovski was honoured to award the actor with the lifetime achievement award “Francois Truffaut”.

Tomorrow, the festival will feature a  Macedonian Focus, with a rich cultural programme including a revue of Macedonian films, performance of music by Muhamed Ibrahimi, a photo exhibition and presentation of traditional Macedonian specialties.
