“The current moment of Serbian cinema does not promise a revolution (the times of revolutions are long gone–with the wind!) but indicates that we are approaching an impending turning point. A turning point of expression, as well as of perception of new films coming from Serbia. European Film Promotion is a point of gravity for various initiatives, numerous exchanges of knowledge and experience. Being a member of EFP presents a challenge and motivation for Serbian filmmakers.”
