The program of short youth film, which will take place in the hall of Primary school "Branko Radičević", will feature student films of two academies. The host of this program is the Academy of Arts from Novi Sad, and this year's guests will be their comrades from the Faculty of Drama Arts in Cetinje. The best film according to the jury's rating will be awarded with the plaque Golden Clip for a young author.
The same program will feature short school films presented at the High School Film Revue "Filmić" from Novi Sad.
The program of film workshops brings two great mentors to Ravno Selo this year. Our famous costume designer Boris Čakširan will hold a workshop on the costume, and the workshop will be accompanied by the exhibition of costumes from his recent work (King Peter the First, I Defended Young Bosnia, Prince Rastko, etc.). Danish actress of Serbian origin, Marijana Janković, will present her short film "Maja", thanks to which she won at this year's Tribeca Film Festival in New York, and after that she will talk with young authors gathered at the workshop.
Lazar Ristovski is the founder of the festival, whose main organizer is the production company Zillion film. The festival was supported by the Provincial Secretariat for Culture of Vojvodina, the Local Community of Ravno Selo, the Ministry of Culture and Information of the Republic of Serbia, the Municipality of Vrbas and the Academy of Arts in Novi Sad.
About Ravno selo
Ravno Selo is a typical village of Bačka, farthest from the municipal center of Vrbas, but it is nevertheless the best connection to the Western parts of Bačka and the Republic of Croatia. It is located between Kulpin and Zmajevo, or as the author of the monograph of Bačka County, Samu Borovszky, would say: “The village of Stare Šove (as the village was called until 1946), lies in the Novi Sad County between Kulpin and the Stari Ker (Zmajevo). The legend of the origin of this village indicates that it was founded in the 15th century, and the first written records about it date back to the end of the 15th century, more precisely between years 1484 and 1502. One of the owners of this area was the Hungarian nobleman Eguerish Idechkiy, and the river Jegrička, which flows through the village, was named after him.
Three settlements are significant for making of the village. Over time, they have merged into one village, on the site where it is today. These villages are: Male Šove, Alpar and Paška. The village of Šove - Ravno Selo, as well as the entire Bačka, was part of the Hungarian state until the Battle of Mohács, which took place in 1526 when they became part of the Ottoman Empire. After 1699 and The Treaty of Karlowitz, Bačka, and therefore the village of Šove, were again part of the Hungarian state. Since 1918, the village of Šove, as well as the entire Bačka, has been merged with Serbia. After the Colonization organized in 1945, the village changed its demographic structure and its name to Ravno Selo. Today, this “typical village of Bačka” has slightly more than 3,000 inhabitants with the Serb majority, in which alongside Serbs live Montenegrins, Macedonians, Hungarians, Croats, Roma people and others.
