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 each and 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 and Ivana Vuković, while the eighth Bašta Fest will be opened by – Milica Janevski! We enjoyed her roles from the movies “Withering” by Miloš Pušić and “Father” by Srdan Golubović, up to more recent ones in the TV serial “Bones” 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, she shared with us: “This year, I have the honour to open the most beautiful festival in Serbia, in my opinion – taking place between 1st and 4th of July, in Bajina Bašta of course. It’s important to highlight that this is the eighth edition of the festival, which is now prominent and dedicated to the decentralization of culture. Bašta Fest gives the necessary space to young people, without making unnecessary differences between those at the beginning of their careers and more experienced colleagues – but instead, Bašta Fest connects the two groups to the satisfaction of both. Oh, and this year, Bašta Fest’s slogan is OFFLINE, with the hope and need that life is coming back to normal, and that we will again watch films in the most beautiful nature, on the big screen.”

We will see you tonight, on July 1st, at 20:30 in Borici Park, at the opening of the eight Bašta Fest! We have prepared many surprises for you, so you are very welcome to join us!
