“The Secret Ingredient” award in Brussels, reviews in respected magazines


The film “The Secret Ingredient” by Gjorche Stavreski has received the special jury award for scenario at the 17th edition of the Mediterranean Film Festival in Brussels which was held between 2nd and 9th December.

In addition to the positive reviews by the Macedonian critics, “The Secret Ingredient” received stellar reviews from the most important magazines in the world film industry. One example is the conclusion by “Variety”: “The wonderful ‘Secret Ingredient’ will not only serve as a strong springboard for Stavreski’s career, but may even push the wider Macedonian film industry forward. “Holywood Reporter” says there is a possibility of an English remake of the film, suggesting Woody Harelson or Matthew McConaughey as a great choice for the lead role.

At the “A category” International film festival “Black Nights” in Tallinn, “The Secret Ingredient” sold out all three shows. At the same time the film was also screened at another international film festival from A Category in India – Goa in the category “Cinema of the world”, which shows the world’s best film achievements from 2017.
