LAKE DANCE PALIC @ PALIC LAKE
The newly founded Lake Dance Palić, the Festival of Independent American Film, will be held from October 25 to 27 at the Abazija cinema on Palić Lake.
LAKE DANCE Film Festival (Palic American Independent Film Festival – PAIFF) will provide the audience with a cross-section of current trends and tendencies in contemporary American art film, which in recent years has attracted more and more attention from the world film critics and audiences with its freshness and innovation.
The festival opens with the films “Love” and “The City” by Vladan Nikolić, a Serbian author who lives and works in New York. Due to the epidemiological situation, Vladan Nikolić is not able to travel to Serbia, but at the opening of the festival, the audience will have the opportunity to talk to him about films, American indie films, inspiration through video calls.
At the first Lake Dance Festival, we will also watch the Serbian premiere of the winner of the Tribeca festival “Brighton 4th”, directed by Levan Koguashvili.
“If we look at the festival offer in Palić, it is clear where the motivation to make an independent American film festival comes from. The audience in Palić and Subotica has a refined taste, which is shown by the European Film Festival Palić and numerous other film festivals and shows. Lake Dance is a film festival that will complement the film and cultural offer and continue to nurture the film audience, “said Miroslav Mogorović, director of the Lake Dance Festival.
The artistic director of PAIFF Lake Dance is Nikolaj Nikitin, a long-time selector of FEF Palić, which already guarantees the audience a quality selection of festival films.
The festival will bring the achievements of promising filmmakers who are engaged in short and feature independent films.
PAIFF Lake Dance will bring the audience a rich film offer that is often not accompanied by marketing campaigns, is not visible on television and in the regular offer of most VOD platforms, and attracts a lot of attention from viewers and film critics around the world. At this festival, the domestic audience, as well as domestic filmmakers and critics, will gain a concrete insight into new themes and art forms of world-famous authors of independent film and contemporary trends in cinematography.
The festival is being held in the Abazija cinema on Lake Palić, and audiences throughout Serbia will be able to follow part of the program online- on the film platform Moj OFF.
The program of the festival will be announced in the coming days on the social networks of the Lake Dance Festival and the Abazija cinema.
