The eleventh edition of Bašta Fest, an international short fiction film festival in Bajina Bašta, will be held from the 4th to the 7th of July 2024. This year’s slogan “So where is your center?” focuses attention on the decentralization of culture and reminds us how important it is to find our center, in ourselves, and at our favorite spot. 

The author of the visual identity is Milica Milosavljević, and this year’s poster suggests that the central gathering place will be the hills of Bajina Bašta and its surroundings. The inspiration and background for the poster are contour lines of the terrain around Lake Zaovine, one of our day trip locations.

This manifestation, founded by actors Jovan Jelisavčić and Maja Šuša, focuses on the collaboration between directors and actors. The focus on quality acting interpretations has had a great influence on Bašta Fest positioning itself positively among short film festivals. 

Bašta Fest is of great importance for the decentralization of culture since it has brought a diverse film, musical and other programme to this beautiful region. Since its very inception, the idea has been to show the incredible natural beauty of Bajina Bašta and its surroundings to a large number of visitors, but we also aspire to turn this festival into a cultural oasis, which primarily promotes local and international young artists, emphasizing short fiction films with authentic acting performances. 

Get ready for four days of free-of-charge film, educational and music programs outdoors!
