We are happy to share the visual identity of the 8th Basta Fest, by the author Milica Milosavljević. Our slogan for this year is OFFLINE, as we want to talk about the beauty of watching films, together, on a large cinema screen.

We are looking forward to gathering, to hanging out, to the days in which we can switch off from our new “every day” brought on by the pandemic. As the last year’s program was non-competition, we are merging last year’s submissions with 2021 submissions – so our selector Maja Šuša had a challenging task, as the competition programme will be chosen from over 1200 applications. As is our tradition, the festival will be opened by a young actress or an actor who has left a particular mark last year, and will be closed by a debut feature film by a Serbian director.

We wish to highlight that from this year, Bašta Fest will give more space and take action on the topics of environmental protection, and the protection of the wonderful natural surroundings where our festival takes place. We will not be printing promo materials, in addition to providing recycling points in festival locations, as our first steps towards sustainability.

We will share more information about our program and ecological initiatives soon!
