Film & Chips – Festival of British Film

Film & Chips, festival of British film in BelgradeBelgrade’s fledgeling festival of British film, Film & Chips, is back for a second year running.

The festival brings the latest UK films, many not on general release, to Belgrade’s film-loving public. Last year’s festival was a big hit with Belgraders and the organisers have decided to bring 2015’s crop of Britain’s best films to the Serbian capital.

Many of the films have drawn nominations and awards at the world’s most prestigious festivals, such as Berlin, Cannes, Toronto, Venice and London.

The theme of this year’s festivals is ‘New talent, new technologies’ and it seeks to introduce younger film-makers who have already achieved critical acclaim but who also have a bright future ahead of them. This year’s crop of film-makers make innovative use of technology and play around with story-telling narratives – hence the theme of the festival – bringing a rich and forward-looking feel to programme.

The festival is organised by the British Council in cooperation with the British Embassy, the Belgrade Youth Centre (Dom omladine) and a separate side of the programme, aimed at film professionals, is organised in partnership with the Serbian Film Commission.

The festival starts on the 21st of January and ends on the 24th. For more details, see our Event Calendar.

About Us:
We live in Belgrade and have always wanted to share what this wonderful city has to offer to its visitors and to those who live and work here. That was what inspired us to create the Living in Belgrade website and community back in 2010. Since then the site has grown and undergone many improvements and with it the community of followers who use social media to get in touch with us and with each other. In short, we want to build on the successes of Living in Belgrade and continue to be a good neighbour and host to people who come to Belgrade from abroad.
Our Community:
Living in Belgrade is an English language website, the focus of a broad English-speaking online community who live and work in Belgrade or visit frequently on business, for pleasure or to catch up on some shopping. Our aim is to help them get the most out of their Belgrade experience and to ensure Belgrade is a place they’ll remember fondly and to which they’ll return again and again.
