XL FEST supported by NIS

February 24, 2012

On Thursday, February 23rd, press conference in Sava Centre marked the gala opening of the jubilee FEST XL – Among the Greats, held from February 24th to march 4th. The cooperation between NIS and FEST was emphasised at the event, as well as the fact that NIS has been the general sponsor of the international film festival for the previous three years. Sanja Lubardic, External Communication Department Director at NIS stated: “NIS prepared the ‘NIS takes you to FEST’ competition for the best short feature film shot using a mobile phone – the film will be screened during the gala closing evening of FEST. As an additional present to the audience in Sava Centre, NIS organised an interesting activity titled ‘As on the silver screen’ – the audience can choose to be photographed on an antique motorcycle with a passenger trailer in front of a LED screen showing movie motifs. The idea is to motivate film lovers to be creative and innovative, and at the same time to remind them of the old times important for the development of film” FEST support is implemented via the company “Culture without Borders” programme, with the goal of promoting the art of film and top artistic values, as well as to support new ideas, initiatives, perseverance, freedom of speech, and to enrich the country’s cultural production.
