The visitors will have a chance to see the second ‘Obnova’ Film Festival within the opening of the fourth Kaleidoscope of Culture, which will be held from 2 to 5 September. In the Creative District, in the area of the former Great Liman, the future centre of contemporary creativity, fans of the seventh art will enjoy films of local and foreign cinematography.
The aim of the festival is the renewal of Novi Sad film production and the promotion of Novi Sad on the European film scene, as well as the implementation of a self-sustaining film festival that will actively contribute to local cinematography, especially to Novi Sad directors and producers.
‘The year 2021, represents a new beginning for ‘Obnova’. It represents a year of rebirth of art and film for the whole country, and we strive to contribute to that to the maximum. Compared to last year, three outdoor locations have already been agreed, the largest of which – the Obnova section, which will be home to remastered local and regional films, the Kolosek section, which will present new local documentaries, and the Pogon section, intended for short student films, children’s programme, as well as films created on the topic of ecology and preservation of the natural environment,’ said Marko Vejinović, on behalf of the ‘Obnova’ Film Festival.
Among the iconic achievements on the big screen, you will be able to watch remastered classics such as the films: ‘The Marathon Family’, ‘The Beauty of Vice’, ‘The Elusive Summer of ’68’ and ‘Kreka: Dreamcatcher’. The film programme will soon be updated with new titles.
Kaleidoscope of Culture, which will last from 2 September until 8 October, is a yearlong project of culture of togetherness within which artists, cultural institutions, non-governmental organisations, citizens and visitors connect in order to create spaces and programmes that will be presented across Novi Sad, creating a unique picture of diversity.
The four days of the opening ceremony in the Creative District, in the area of Great Liman, will be an overture to five weeks, during which, through five arts – architecture, literature, visual, applied and performing art, programmes will be presented throughout Novi Sad, giving visitors the opportunity to choose and create their own kaleidoscope of culture.
