Description

The first FEST, under the slogan “A Brave New World” was opened on the 9th of January 1971 in Belgrade, with the screening of Robert Altman’s “Mash”. Envisioned as the annual review of the best films of the season, the Belgrade International Film Festival - FEST - evolved to become one of the most important festivals in the region and wider, and a pillar event of the cultural life in Belgrade, as well as an indispensable element in the coming of age of many generations of film fans.

Objective

Nearly five decades after its first edition, FEST continues to fulfill its cultural and educational role with the same energy, broadening the horizons of all film fans. An important feature of FEST all these years has been its openness to films from all parts of the world, as well as to all relevant authors and works that would never have the opportunity to be shown in cinemas.
