16 June 2019 - Minister of Culture Aleksandar Bogdanović and UNDP Resident Representative in Montenegro Daniela Gasparikova signed the agreement on cooperation between the two institutions within the project Creative Montenegro - Economic Valorisation and Creative Industries in Cetinje, as reported by the Ministry of Culture of Montenegro.
The agreement defines numerous fields of cooperation over the next two years, thanks to which the sector of creative industries in Montenegro will be fully valued. In addition, a part of the programme will focus on the cultural heritage, which, during today's signing ceremony, has been assessed as an outstanding potential in the field of cultural tourism. Apart from the above, the partnership will be also established in order to present and popularise the natural and cultural heritage through the cultural routes of the Council of Europe and the European Mediterranean route "EuroVelo8".
Only a few days ago, the Creative Montenegro project gave the first results this year. A total of 11 authors are supported by the first competition in the framework of this project, which will establish a Montenegrin cultural product, as a fruit of the creative sector and entrepreneurial-productive cooperation. There are 10 projects and products, and one scientific study.
On this occasion, the author of one of the 11 ideas supported by the contest "Creative Montenegro" is "Articulation" from Podgorica presented the project "VR Montenegro", which is based on contemporary technologies of virtual reality, that is, 'location scouting' in the film industry. Thanks to this project, Montenegro's presentation as a destination at film fairs and festivals will be extremely enriched - as representatives of interested production companies will be able to see, in one place, using VR glasses, all film locations and landscapes in our country. Not only will Montenegro be further affirmed as a film destination, but it will also be possible for authors to valorize their work through co-production with some of the overseas production companies. Igor Mitic from "Articulation" explains that the project "VR Montenegro" will introduce a series of locations from Montenegro.
