The promotion of the luxurious edition of “The Critics Guide to Serbian Film 2000-2017”, published by the Serbian Film Centre (FCC) will be held on Friday, 23rd March, at 7pm at Delfi bookstore in Studentski kulturni centar in Belgrade.
Apart from the book’s authors – Djordje Bajic, Zoran Jankovic and Ivan Velisavljevic – the film critic for the renowned Zagreb-based daily Jutarnji List, Nenad Polimac and Sandra Perovic, Head of the film and series department at the Radio and Television of Serbia, will speak at the promotion too,
“This is a particularly important edition that summarizes and promotes Serbian film production in the last 18 years, with the views from three young and reputable film critics. The book is written both for the general public and film professionals alike”, the FCC said.
One of the guide’s authors, Zoran Jankovic says that the motive for writing the book was very clear, that is to “to create a detailed and precise picture of the situation in the Serbian feature film in a certain period, as well as in the Serbian cinema in this era, and at the same time, to unite the passion of filmophiles, which all three writers claim to be, with a serious, level-headed and measured assessment of individual qualitative ranges of Serbian films”.
The book is beautifully illustrated with posters and photographs from the featured films, which were collected and prepared by Maja Medic. Borut Vild, who is one of the leading graphic designers in Belgrade, was in charge of the design, while film critic Nenad Polimac wrote the editorial for the book.
