    Very excited to learn that my film was accepted in the Prokuplje Film Festival. I wish I could have been there. The program looked very robust and well-rounded. Very happy that a Serbian audience had a chance to see my work. Great communication with the festival programmers.

  • Although our film officially included in the festival program, we did not get any feedback, nor any official invitation or message. We believe that it is not in the spirit of good manners and professional communication.
