A word from the founder

A year ago, in my home village, Ravno selo ,The Cultural Center burnt down.

At the premiere of my movie, Train Driver’s Diary which was held in ruins of the Cultural Center, in July 2016, I decided to take the initiative to rebuild the Cultural Center.
The idea and the purpose of rebuilding turned into the organization of the first film festival.

Ravno selo is my childhood and the one who forgets his childhood doesn’t exist in the future, neither.I wish for the youth from Ravno selo and the region to have a better future. With this festival we will open the door to that future.

The festival is dedicated to the youth of my village, to the neighbors from the adjacent villages and to everyone who will participate in it whether as a performer or as an audience. This festival will also confirm the fact that the culture isn’t solely located or consummated in the big cities since the smaller communities are often talent nursery area from all fields, including culture. I do all of this as a volunteer and this symbolize great love. I have it. For the film as well as for my neighbors from Ravno selo and nearby villages.

About festival

Ravno selo film festival is the debut film festival which will be held On Saturday 24th June until Monday 26th June 2017.

This year Ravno selo film festival will gather young professionals and high school students, most likely future students interested in film.

During the three day manifestation, 5 representative debut films from the region will be presented in the main program.

This year, the host faculty will be the Faculty of Dramatic Arts from Belgrade and the guest faculty will be The Academy of Dramatic Arts from Zagreb. The professors and students from both faculties will participate actively at the festival.

The students’ films will be presented at the workshops.

One of the goals of the festival is to create a closer union and approach between film and filmmakers and the young people. On the other side, the goal is also to educate and motivate the youth to engage themselves in cinematography which will enrich their experience as spectators and increase their artistic growth, as was stated in Zillion film, Lazar Ristovski ’s production company which is also the organizer of the festival.

Film Lectures, Saturday 24th June 2017,Primary School Branko Radicevic

How to watch a film?

Lectures about watching a film.
Most of the young, talented people who want to be a part of the film industry think that the professionals watch and estimate the film in some more skillful and proficient way in comparison to the regular audience. We will talk about the tendency to liberate the spectators from the assumption that film is supposed to be watched by someone else’s eyes but their own. To be involved in the film making, either in theory or in practice gives various aspects of watching but the first and basic impression of a naïve and unpoisoned spectator should not be underestimated nor diminished in any way. If we want to be involved in filmmaking then we have to learn to recognize everything that occurs in ourselves while watching a film and be able to define it clearly.
Lecturer, director and professor Miloš Pavlović with a help of the students from the Film and TV directing studies, FDA Belgrade

Film lectures about acting

Guest lecturer, Mirjana Karanovic

Film lectures,Monday 26th June 2017, Primary school Branko Radicevic

Obstacle is an advantage.

Film lecturers about the production or in other words, about the process of making a film. What is production? Which role has a producer within a team? Why is he important to make one project effectively accomplished from the beginning till the end? What is the role of a creative producer? The one that always seeks the way. The producer must find new methods and technique to overcome the obstacles and to turn them into his own advantages. Creative producer must have a high level of active will and desire because it is the only indicator of his own talent. The more talent is present in the project the less means are necessary for its realization.
