Award for "Circles" at Berlinale 2013

Film "Circles" directed by Srdan Golubović won the Ecumenical Jury Prize in the category of films screened in the Forum section.

The Ecumenical Jury Prize is awarded by the representatives of catholic and protestant church film organisations to those filmmakers whose films promote human and social values.

The jury awarded the film because of "a bold portrayal of human potentials in crossing seemingly unbeatable prejudice and healing through reconciliation."

The film Circles was inspired by the story of Srdjan Aleksić, a Serbian from the town of Trebinje killed by his own soldiers after he helped his fellow citizen who was a Muslim. Three parallel stories take place in Belgrade (Serbia), Hale (Germany) and Trebinje (Montenegro), following the characters who face their pasts twenty years later. The film stars Aleksandar Berček, Nebojša Glogovac, Leon Lučev, Hristina Popović and Vuk Kostić.

Film is co-production between Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, Germany and France.
