We are excited to share our last piece of pre-festival news with you! Thus far, each Bašta Fest was opened by a young actor or actress who has enjoyed great success in the previous year. Basta Fest has been growing with every one of them, and we always look forward to their new roles while also being very proud of them. Past editions of Basta Fest were opened by Nikola Rakočević, Slaven Došlo, Marko Janketić, Hana Selimović, Milan Marić, Isidora Simijonović, Filip Đurić, Ivana Vuković, Milica Janevski, and Mladen Sovilj, while the tenth Bašta Fest will be opened by – Milena Radulović! We enjoyed her roles in the movies “Toma”, “Trail of the Beast”, “Superdeep”, “The Balkan Line”, the TV series ”Besa”, “Five”, “Civil Servant”, “The Professor Mišković’s Notebook”, and we can’t wait to see the next roles that are in front of her!

When we asked her what Bašta Fest means to her, Milena told us: “It is a great honour for me to open the tenth, jubilee Bašta Fest. It’s wonderful that the tendency of the young people has become a safe place for new young artists, a springboard and a wind in their back. That’s why I’m honoured to be a part of that story and I hope that Bašta Fest will grow year by year, and have an ever-greater impact on our society.”
