The festival of the American independent film will take place in Belgrade, from 28th October to 1st November.
The Festival is organized by the Belgrade Dom Omladine and Super Films International, with the help of the US Embassy in Belgrade. It takes place for the third consecutive year, and this year, it pays homage to the great American film director, David Lynch.
For the first time in Belgrade, the audiences will be able to see the excellent documentary called ‘David Lynch – the Art Life’ which had its premiere at the Venice Film Festival, and in which Lynch tells a story about his childhood, fantasmagories and artistic maturity. Following that, the festival will showcase Monica Demes’ film ‘Lilith’s Awakening’, a horror. Filmed in Iowa, this is a black and white remake of the famous Dracula movies, but in Lynch’s recognizable style (who was an artistic consultant of the movie).
This year’s IndieBelgrade Festival will also play host to film director Wayne Roberts whose film ‘Kathie Says Goodbye’ will open the festival. The film has already been shown in Toronto and Rotterdam. This is a suggestive drama about a young prostitute from a small town in Arizona who is played by Spielberg’s muse, Olivia Cooke.
The film ‘West Virginia Stories’, directed by Preston Peterson and Jason Boesch, comprises of three stories examining what it means to live, find connection, deal with trauma, and do more than just exist, in the rural landscape of small mining town in West Virginia. The winner of the Los Angeles Film Festival, Dave Boyle is coming back to IndieBelgrade this year with his film ‘Man from Reno’, in which a mystery outside of San Francisco brings together small-town sheriff Paul Del Moral, Japanese author Aki Akahori, and a traveler from Reno who soon disappears, leaving behind his suitcase and a trail of questions.
Another thriller – ‘Dead Bullet’, directed by Erik Reese – awaits the goers of the IndieBelgrade Festival. The film was made in Las Vegas desert, and it talks about hard-luck gambler who risks everything to sell stolen casino chips to a ruthless gunslinger.
All films will be screened at the Dom Omladine Cinema, and the tickets cost 250 dinars.
