There is something special about sitting in the dark, quiet, with some 3600 people, watching a movie. That happens on a FEST night in the theatre of Sava Centar in New Belgrade.
Several different programmes of the festival run in different venues. Dom omladine (Belgrade Youth Centre) with its laid back atmoshpere and enthusiasts who remained without tickets sometimes sitting on the floor, DKC that reminds of old school cinemas*, Kinoteka, with its two lovely halls on two locations, an archive of cinematographic art.
Films are in original languages with Serbian subtitles.
Typically, there is no red carpet, but we shall see what the future holds, as the festival has recently instituted awards and announced it will be more industry oriented.
