It’s Thursday, and time for our report about the cultural and entertainment events coming up in the next few days.
Event: Plan B – Subversive Film Festival
Place: Dom Omladine, 22, Makedonska Street
Time: Friday, 15th June to Sunday, 17th June
At a time when value systems depend on money, power and interests that individuals, groups or entire countries change according to their current goals, the number of oppressed, humiliated and rejected individuals is on the rise. Rejected by the society, government, colleagues, friends and even loved ones, these modern-day Don Quixotes are trying to maintain a minimum of dignity and fight for their basic rights. Six very special films, that are going to be showcased at the subversive film festival called PLAN B, depict exactly this. For more information about the Festival’s programme, please click here.
Event: Zvezda Open-air Cinema Summer Season
Place: 40, Terazije
Time: open until 18th June
Zvezda was one of the first cinemas in Belgrade, however with the economic crisis in the 1990s and privatizations after the 2000s, the cinema was sold to a private enterprise and left abandoned and neglected. However, last year, a group of enthusiasts decided to squat in the old dilapidated and seemingly long forgotten cinema and now, a year later, they are screening movies and holding debates on the rooftop. Admission is dirt cheap so you just need to look for the programme. Watching legendary old and new films in a hidden roof top location cossetted away amongt the Belgrade lofts is an extraordinary experience.
