Martovski Festival – 66th edition of the Belgrade Documentary and Short Film Festival will take place from March 27 to March 31 2019 in the Belgrade Youth Center venue, under the Center’s management.

Traditionally, the Martovski Festival is the meeting point for national and international filmmakers, producers, distributors and festival directors, reporters and critics, students and professionals. It is the place of promotion of documentary, animated, short and experimental film, a platform for inspiration and developing new ideas, as well as the chance for the local audience to see exciting, carefully picked latest films they cannot see through regular cinema channels.

The Belgrade Documentary and Short Film Festival is a permanent event of cultural importance for the City of Belgrade. Festival Sponsors are the City of Belgrade, the Ministry of Culture and Information of the Republic of Serbia, Film Center Serbia.

Festival friend: LUKOIL SERBIA. Festival Supporters: Italian Cultural Institute, Living Pictures, Alma Quattro, Miamiam Restaurant, Mezestoran Dvorište Restaurant, Kafeterija, Tourist Organization of Belgrade, Tourist Organization of Serbia.

One of the oldest European and world film festivals will span over 5 days, and the audience will have the chance to see a plenitude of films in a number of national competition programs: documentaries over 50 minutes, experimental film and video art, animated and short film – this category is international, too. We scheduled a number of special screenings, expert programmes and panel discussions for professionals and students, meetings and Q&A sessions with Festival guests, master classes and other supporting programmes.

This year, almost 4000 Serbian and international films have entered the competition program. A respectable panel of selectors, top Serbian film professionals will select films to compete for the festival Grand Prix in each category (plus the financial support of 2000 Euros payable in Serbian Dinars that goes with the prize), as well as four specialized awards – for best directing, camera, editing and sound design/music.
