The 10th Beldocs International Documentary Film Festival opened with a screening of Andrew Dominik’s “One more time with feeling”, about famous musician Nick Cave.
“When I look back on the past 10 years, only two things will mark them: incredibly hard work and vision, which brought us here,” said Mladen Vušurović, director of the Beldocs Festival.
Australian Ambassador to Serbia, H.E. Julia Feeney, addressed the audience, saying: “I congratulate you on the tenth anniversary of the festival and hope that together we will await the twentieth anniversary”.
Film lovers in attendance were addressed by Frank Baumann, director of the Goethe Institute, Elena Boggio, representing the Creative Europe – MEDIA programme, and Paul Pauwels, director of the European Documentary Network.
The honour of opening the festival was given to Swedish director Stig Björkman, author of the documentary film “Ingrid Bergman in Her Own Words”.
