The eighth "Free Zone" film festival

The eighth "Free Zone" festival of socially engaged film, which will screen 35 feature films and documentaries on current social and political issues, begins in Belgrade.

The festival, which runs until 7th of November, will open at 1900h in the Cultural Center of Belgrade with a screening of “Where do we go now", a feature film by the Lebanese director Nadine Labak.

The event will be opened by writer Dubravka Ugrešić, who is this year’s guest selector. She has chosen four films that deal with the fate of migrants from Africa, Asia and South Eastern Europe to Western Europe.
Visitors to the festival will be able to see 24 documentaries and 10 feature films, which will be screened at both Dom Omladine and the Cultural Centre of Belgrade.

This year’s festival will host 28 film auteurs and participants of the accompanying programme that will be screened during the six days of the festival.

The closing film of the festival will be "Football Rebels" by Jules Rofa and Jules Perez, which tells the story of five players who have tried to prevent civil war, influence democratization or struggle against dictatorships in their communities, which was produced by footballer Eric Cantona.

An encore selection of films will be screened at the Cultural Center of Belgrade on 8th of November, consisting of films which have received the highest audience scores, and at 23:00h, "Mobile", a comedy by Nedžad Begović, filmed entirely with a mobile phone, will be screened as the surprise feature.

This year, an accompanying programme dubbed "Night Calls”, which will take place after the evening screenings in the Cultural Center of Belgrade, will for the first time be a part of the "Free Zone" film festival.
