Starting up a film festival
Hello! I have an idea to start a film festival in Eastern Europe, specifically in Serbia. I want to ask you, cinematographers - what do you think about filming in countries like Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia? Everybody knows that these countries offers a low cost production, and that they have beautiful landscapes, cities, architecture, and also a good and educated film crew.
My idea is to start an international film festival with a various workshops both for amatuers and professionals. It would be held in a old classical town near Novi Sad. This town can offer many beautiful locations with a wonderful architecture (from modern to classical), preserved nature beauties with rivers, mountains, hills and fields, and with a variety of social portraits in the surroundings.
My question is - would you come, submit film or participate into the workshop, and what is your standing point about this topic? Also, what would you love to see and feel here, and who would you love to see in the jury.
Thank you for sharing your experiences and thoughts with me and my crew!
