With 5 world premieres, 5 international premieres and over 50 national premieres, PriFest promises another great edition for film lovers, bringing to its audience around 60 films, more then any previous editions, divided in 7 different programs.

The festival announced this year its cooperation with British Council to bring the British Night section with great films from the UK. Stephen Frears΄ Philomena is expected to open this year’s PriFest.

On the jury of Balkan Film Competition Program (Honey and Blood Cinema) we find the names of British playwright Mark Ravenhill, Kirsten Schaffer, executive director of OutFest festival in Los Angeles and Karin Angela Schyle from Germany, ex manager of goEast festival. Dutch producer Kees Kassander, Cedomir Kolar, Croatian-born producer from France and Bosnian actor Velibor Topic are the jury-trio for the European Film Competition Program

Velvet Terrorists

For the first time the films are going to be evaluated also from the Students’ Independent Jury, which will give an award for the best film in European category. PriFest director, Mrs. Vjosa Berisha stated: "We are proud for this composition of juries, and apart from coming from all over the world, they are ‘heavy weight’ in terms of their careers filled with prestigious film awards [...] I am particularly glad that Kosovar students, too, will have the opportunity to participate in the decision-making, by being members of Independent Student jury".

The festival will close with a 240-minute version of Lars Von Trier΄s Nymphomaniac on May Day.

PriFest also hosts PriFORUM, an industry platform of the festival and meeting point of regional filmmakers, taking place on 26-27 April.
