Sino-Serbian Youth Photography Exhibition and Chinese Documentary Film Week Started in Svilara

Sino-Serbian Youth Photography Exhibition and Chinese Documentary Film Week were opened in the Svilara Cultural Station on 6 May. Violeta Đerković, coordinator of the network of cultural stations and Prof. Siniša Bokan, Dean of the Academy of Arts, have spoken at the opening ceremony.

Students from Serbia and China will present their vision of the global pandemic situation through photography and film. During the following two weeks, the Novi Sad audience will have a chance to see 8 films as well as 57 works within the exhibition, including works by two Serbian artists – Anja Jurca and Miljan Sekulić.

Tian Zhen, one of the organizers, says that the goal of the festival was very simple at the beginning – for the locals to learn more about China, young Chinese photographers and Chinese culture. You can read the interview with him HERE.

You can find the complete programme HERE, as well as the application form for film screenings. Applications are required due to the epidemiological situation, and one application is valid for one seat at the selected film screening. The exhibition will be open to public in the Main Hall of the Svilara Cultural Station every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., except on the last day of the exhibition, 20 May, when visitors will be able to see it from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.

The festival is implemented by the Association for the Exchange of Educational Content between China and Serbia, the Academy of Arts in Novi Sad, the Ethnographic Museum Belgrade, the University Library Belgrade, BELDOCS and the Svilara Cultural Station.
