MONTENEGRO: PODGORICA

THE JURY SPEAKERS

Jelena
My name is Jelena. I live with my parents and my brother.

I go to primary school.

I love watching movies. My favourite are action movies and comedies.

I usually watch them on TV.

 

Vasilje (14)

 My name is Vasilje. I am 14 years old and live in Podgorica.

I am really impressed with action films because of the way they are shot with all the different camera angles, and also because of the feeling you get when watching them. The last film I saw in a cinema was FAST & FURIOUS 8.

PODGORICA


inhabitants: 200,000
kids: 40,000

Dobrodošli u Podgoricu! Podgorica is the capital and largest city of Montenegro. It’s at the crossroads of several historically important routes, in the valley of Lake Skadar, near the Adriatic Sea, in fertile lowlands with favourable climate. Altought it’s not a huge city, it hosts various cultural events, as music and film festivals, theater shows, artistic performances etc.

Montenegrin Cinematheque

The main activities of the cinematheque are gathering and preserving films and supplementary film materials (documents, photographs, posters, publicity materials, old items related to film etc). The films of artistic, cultural, historical and scientific importance are regularly shown to the citizens, and they offer them the insight in the national as well as the world cultural heritage. Film Archives of Montenegro is opened for all researchers, scientists and students who deal with the history and theory of film.

Podgorica Film Festival


Podgorica Film Festival is the first feature-length film festival in Podgorica. The motivation to organise this kind of event is the shortage of cinema halls and public cinemas in general. In two programme segments the audience has the opportunity to see European and world cinema films which can’t be found on the schedules of regular cinemas.
