November 1, 2020 - That art knows no boundaries and always overcomes obstacles and barriers. That film art finds a way to reach its audience, even at this time of the "wild" epidemic of coronavirus, is a fact proven by the IV Forteca Film Festival Perast, which will be held from November 3 to 5, 2020, in Kotor.
To the great satisfaction of everyone involved, this marks the beginning of future cooperation between the Forteca Film Festival and the Cultural Center "Nikola Đurković" Kotor, and also marks the opening of the renovated hall of the BOKA cinema, which gives this, the fourth Festival in a row, special significance.
The grand opening will be on Tuesday, November 3, at 6 pm, and fifteen minutes later, a screening of the film Charter by director Amanda Carnel will begin.
The first night of the Festival will end with the Swedish film Goliath, directed by Peter Grondal.
On Wednesday, November 4, at 6 pm, the film Pool by director Anders Lenberg will be shown, and from 8 pm in the press hall of the Cultural Center, a Zoom panel discussion will be held with filmmakers from northern Europe. The audience will have the opportunity to meet the authors through the online platform and ask questions.
This year's IV Forteca Film Festival Perast ends on Thursday, November 5, with the screening of the films: The Man Who Played with Fire - a documentary about Stig Larson, author of the Millennium Trilogy, which was also received in Hollywood and The Perfect Patient, by Mikaela Hofstuma.
