Hello there, everybody! I'm Uros and I'm gonna tell you some things about myself.

First, I live in Novi Sad in the country of Serbia. I live with my parents and with my sister.

My hobbies are playing video games, programming and cycling, of course. I cycle with my friends 'cause when I go alone, it's really boring.

But I wanna talk about film: They're awesome! I love reading and watching films. I often read a book and then watch the film and then compare them. That's really fun! My favourite type of film is adventure and science-fiction.

Novi Sad is the second largest town in Serbia. Situated on a rock above the Danube, the Petrovaradin Fortress, also known as “Gibraltar on Danube”, has proudly been overseeing the city for over three centuries. Novi Sad is the host of the famous Exit music festival, which was officially pronounced the best in Europe for the year of 2016. It is elected to be European Capital of Culture in 2021.

FREE ZONE

FREE ZONE is not only popular annual film festival, but also a broader initiative which reaches different target groups. Program is based on films that are eye-opening and often leave their viewers with the feeling of freedom and responsibility that comes with being an active citizen. In these cases the art of film can actually make a difference.

FILM CENTER SERBIA
