Three grandkids from three different countries will take their grandmothers to an anarchically symbolic journey into the past, creating a complex story; an experiment which might be very important in bringing back the 20th century values and transfering them onto the upcoming generations. The movie confronts classic values as well as historic taboos in a very interesting manner, with some very important methods which show us the perspective and the spirit of an era – the young today.
The authors of this warm and crucial life story are grandkids – Meredith Colchester, Ruben Woodin – Dechamps, and Bàlint Rèvèsz, as well as their grandmothers – Rosanne Colchester, Gudrun Dechamps and Livia Rèvèsz. The movie was directed by Bálint Révész, Albert Màrkos was in charge of music, while the production was handled by Làszlò Kàntor and Bàlint Rèvèsz.
Cinema Now is a two-day pop-up festival scheduled for October 26 and 27 of this year at the cultural station Svilara in Novi Sad, and is organized by Cinema City. The venue perfectly blends good music, good movies, as well as an attractive, formerly industrial location which is now redesigned into a cultural zone.
The music programme has already been announced; E-Play and Fran Palermo are scheduled for October 26, while Repetitor will be in charge of headlining the festival the following day, October 27.
Apart from Granny Project, so far the festival has announced the screening of Zaposlena, Blossom Valley, Teret, Zemlja meda, Ti imaš noć, and Aleksi, while more movies are to be announced soon. The movie selection will encompass some of the most interesting movies by younger authors from Serbia, Hungary, Romania, Croatia, Slovenia, etc.
The entrance to the festival is free of charge, while it is recommended to reserve a place upfront, so as to avoid large crowds and overall rush at the entrance.
The majority of the authors will be our guests during the two days of the festival, where one of our goals is to organize Q&A sessions after the movie projections, as is frequently done during the Cinema City festival.
The project Cinema Now is realized by Cinema City in cooperation with the Novi Sad 2021 – European Capital of Culture Foundation.
