Springtime in Belgrade!
Sedmi Beogradski Irski Festival

 

Sedmi Beogradski Irski Festival (BIF), koji se održava od 9. do 17. marta
pod sloganom „Springtime in Belgrade!“, predstaviće na više lokacija u
Beogradu neke od najzanimljivijih segmenata irske kulture.
Tokom devet dana festivala, publiku očekuju najznačajnija i najnovija filmska
ostvarenja iz Irske, atraktivne izložbe, književne večeri, radionice i drugi
atraktivni kulturni događaji.

„Zadovoljstvo je najaviti 7. Beogradski irski festival, koji će predstaviti živopisne
irske i srpske sadržaje u oblasti filma, muzike, književnosti, vizuelnih umetnosti,
a kulminiraće proslavom dana Svetog Patrika, koju nikako ne treba propustiti 17.
marta u Beogradu. Festival se održava od 9. do 17. marta, a publika će imati
priliku da uživa u brojnim programima uključujući sedmodevni filmski segment,
sa dokumentarnim i dečijim animiranim ostvarenjima, koji će otvoriti irski reditelj
nominovan za Oskara Leni Abrahamson, zatim ranu irsku i srpsku duhovnu
umetničku izložbu, a po prvi put festival će ostaviti trajni trag u Beogradu u vidu
velike strit-art instalacije irskog umetnika Džejms Erlija“, izjavio je Jas
Kaminski, direktor Beogradskog Irskog Festivala.

Filmski program predstaviće neke od najrelevantnijih filmskih ostvarenja iz Irske,
a između ostalih biće prikazani i neki od najznačajnijih filmova Lenija
Abrahmsona (Lenny Abrahamson), reditelja filma Soba nominovanog za Oskara
2016. godine, koji će biti i specijalni gost ovogodišnjeg festivala. Bri Larson
(Brie Larson) je za glavnu ulogu u ovom ostvarenju osvojila Oskara (kao i Zlatni
globus i BAFTA nagradu). Pored igranih i dokumentarnih filmova, festival će
posebnu pažnju ove godine posvetiti animiranim filmovima za decu i odrasle.

U okviru programa Vizuelne umetnosti, čuveni strit-art umetnik Džejms Erli
(James Early) oslikaće mural / strit-art instalaciju u centru Beograda, a publika
će imati priliku i da vidi neverovatne digitalne skulpture prestižnog irskog
umetnika Džona Gerarda (John Gerrard).

Prvi put ove godine, oslanjajući se na uspeh Beogradskog irskog festivala, u
saradnji sa Ambasadom Irske biće održana jednodnevna Digitalna konferencija
čiji je fokus kreativna digitalna industrija u Srbiji i Irskoj i mogućnosti da
kompanije investiraju u Srbiju. Učestvovaće predstavnici irskih i srpskih
kompanija, a specijalnu prezentaciju održaće vodeći studio za animciju u Irskoj –
Cartoon Saloon ( www.cartoonsaloon.ie ), koji ima tri nominacije za Oskara, ali i
za Zlatni globus, BAFTA nagradu i Emmy. Konferenciju će otvoriti ambasadorka
Irske, njena ekselencija Orla O Hanrahan.

Festival će se ove godine osvrnuti i na irsku književnost, a očekuje se i uzbudljiv
muzički program.

Glavni grad će se i ove godine, zahvaljujući Beogradskom Irskom Festivalu,
pridružiti svetskim metropolama koje obeležavaju irski nacionalni praznik Dan
Svetog Patrika, pa će nekoliko gradskih lokacija, uključujući Most na Adi, biti
osvetljeno irsko-zelenim svetlom.

Uskoro možete očekivati detaljnije informacije o programu!
