SEEfest on VOD
We’re working on bringing you more films on VOD and invite you to catch online two features from last year’s festival: Bulgarian Losers, which won Special Jury Mention at SEEfest as well awards at several European festivals, a humorous coming-of-age tale about four high school friends whose quiet provincial lives are shaken up when a rock band arrives in town; and Turkish The Half, SEEfest Audience Award winner 2016, which tells the story of two lonely innocents and their unlikely friendship.
New grant for SEEfest from California Arts Council
The California Arts Council, a state agency, announced its plans to award a grant to the South East European Film Festival, SEEfest, as part of its Local Impact program.
The Local Impact program fosters equity, access, and opportunity by providing project and partnership support for arts organizations with operating budgets under $1 million. SEEfest is one of just 130 grantees chosen for this highly competitive program, which received applications from 203 organizations statewide.
SEEfest programs supported by this grant transcend languages and borders through a cinematic journey which helps to better understand challenges in our own backyard. Thank you, California Arts Council!
