Celebrating SEEfest Accomplishments in 2020

A Time to Reflect

As 2020 comes to a close, it seems to be the perfect time to acknowledge and celebrate that we’ve made it through one of the most difficult years of our lives.

We want to share some of SEEfest’s accomplishments this past year, some against all odds.

In February as we were finalizing details for our 15-year anniversary celebration, it became clear it wasn’t going to be happening as we imagined.

SEEfest was among the first film festival to pivot and successfully switch to an online festival, partnering with one of the world’s leading platforms, SHIFT72.

Pushing the Festival back, the 2020 edition with 51 films, most of them North-American or U.S. premieres, ran from July 15 to August 16.

Virtual juried awards were organized with 21 industry professionals from Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Austin, Oakland, and Canada, Sweden, and Spain.

The popular annual Cultural and Literary Salon exploring the ‘Boundaries of Belonging’ took place on Zoom.

Seven online workshops dedicated to industry Accelerator for new projects engaged filmmakers from Canada, Greece, Romania, Serbia, and L.A.-based Bulgarian-Armenian, Serbian, Filipino-Romanian, Peruvian-American and African American filmmakers.

Plus…

  • Four film premieres took place on the Virtual Cinema platform, in partnership with Synergetic Films.
  • Two special online events were organized in November and December to highlight prominent Oscar contenders from the S.E. European region.
  • Through direct SEEfest advocacy, several festival films were acquired by U.S. distributors, with special legacy programs in pre-production. 
  • New interns joined SEEfest in 2020 from CSU Long Beach, CSU Northridge, UC Santa Cruz, and Boston University. 
  • A new partnership was initiated with BEEM, the innovative online platform for film distribution and presentation.
  • Behind the scenes, we’ve been working on major technological upgrades in marketing, fundraising, the SEEfest website, and social media. 
  • A strategic initiative was launched to expand outreach to diverse communities both in Southern California and across the United States.

In a year of uncertainty, we continuously asked ourselves, how can we best serve our audience.

As a nonprofit festival, we bumped up against new and unexpected costs required in order to make the changes we considered important in order to meet our mission.

We are grateful for your support and the partnership of our sponsors who helped us make it through the year.

 

In order to help us meet our commitment to the 2021 Festival, we hope you will consider making a year-end donation to see us through as we continue to bring you the best film and culture from South East Europe.

Stay tuned for details as SEEfest 2021 takes shape!

Sending you best wishes for a safe and happy 2021,

Vera Mijojlic and the SEEfest Team

Growing up hard, searching for directions

Renowned Serbian documentarian Ivana Todorović seamlessly transitioned to short fiction in her delicate yet powerfully told tale of surviving domestic abuse, When I’m at Home, while Alexandros Kakaniaris offers his own take on growing up hard in The Dude, a young boy’s attempt to break into the world of adults.

 

 

Making sense of politics

Join Romanian grandfather telling his American grandson about his role in the 1989 revolution that overthrew the Communist dictatorship, My Father’s Revolution by Diana Nicolae;  and pair it up with a satirical animated short turning the notion of freedom and democracy on its head in Moldovan appropriately titled Freedom from directing duo of Mircea Bobînă & Vadim Țigănaș. While browsing our shorts program, stop by Igor Ćorić’s winning short animation Passage (Serbia), and end on a touching note in Henning Backhaus’s delightful, innovative nod to diversity in Austrian live-action and animation short, The Best Orchestra in the World.

The flamboyant inventor, and an old-fashioned acrobat

The Century of Dreams protagonist invented the perfume spray bottle, the plastic zipper, the lighter with a side-button and 400 other patents, was also among the first airbag developers and managed to socialize with movie stars in Monte Carlo. A very different man is the subject of Greek documentary Spiros and the Circle of Death, a throwback to an older, dying art of motorcycle death-rides and family tradition of circus acrobats.

 

 

 

Spotlight on short films: nature, politics, techno absurd, sci-fi, and more!

Spend some time with the poetic and powerful ode to nature Then Comes the Evening (Serbia/Bosnia Herzegovina), devastating political satire Zimnicea (Romania), laugh-out-loud Best Game Ever (Hungary), and Two (USA/Turkey) which tips its hat to sci-fi fans. Each of our three program blocks with diverse short vignettes offers plenty to explore.

The epic wind Bora of Northern Adriatic and Turkey’s Queen Lear

These two films shared SEEfest 2020 Jury award for Best Documentary, and it is easy to see why: Bora, Story about a Wind follows the eponymous gale around the intersection of cultures in Northern Adriatic, while Queen Lear takes us to rural Turkey where local women take part in the production of Shakespeare’s play with their own twist. Both films are blowing much-needed laughter into the cinematic sails and regaling us with entertaining and uplifting stories.

Are you ready to binge-watch the 2020 selection of new films from South East Europe? Travel with movies to a region where diversity and entangled histories lend rich material to filmmakers of all stripes. From WWII dramas to intense chamber pieces, movies about the wind – or Shakespeare plays starring women from rural Turkey; sci-fi political satire, and comic retelling of a marriage headed for divorce. These films take you to remote villages and the pains of acting auditions, atmospheric police procedural, and corporate takeovers of inner-city neighborhoods.

Movies are indeed a great way to travel, especially to a region with dozens of mostly small countries that are still the least known part of Europe for most Americans. Travel with SEEfest pass and visit South East Europe! Note: Available only to patrons in the U.S. All films with English subtitles.

Book recommendation: An Armenian Sketchbook, by Vasily Grossman

Discover Armenia from the early 1960s in this wonderful account by Grossman, whose astute observations on human nature are uncannily applicable to our own times. The book is entertaining, a fast read, gripping, philosophical, and intimate, all at the same time. A major 20th-century writer, Grossman wrote about the WWII horrors as well as the horrors of the Stalinist era. His sketchbook on Armenia is a short-form masterpiece and an excellent introduction to Grossman’s other works.

An Armenian Sketchbook is available on Amazon.

Classic book behind 2020 SEEfest movie: IZA’S BALLAD, by Magda Szabó

Iza's Ballad by Magda Szabo

We invite you to read the novel that inspired one of this year’s SEEfest films in competition (Pilate). Written by the celebrated Hungarian writer Magda Szabó, the book, titled IZA’S BALLAD in English translation by George Szirtes, is a mother-daughter story that spans the bygone 20th century past and the new utilitarian age of neo-capitalist Hungary. Find the book HERE.

SEEfest Launches 15th Edition Online July 15 – August 16, 2020

The 15th annual South East European Film Festival in Los Angeles (SEEfest), postponed in April due to the COVID-19 pandemic, announced the official launch of its 2020 edition which will run from July 15 – August 16, at the dedicated online outlet (athome.seefilmla.org).

“After months of incredible work by our very own dream team, the 2020 festival is happening online,” said Vera Mijojlic, Founder and Director of SEEfest. “It was truly a heroic effort. We battled technical issues, filmmakers reluctance, and lots of night time work – but we did it.”

In a joint statement the SEEfest Board of Directors noted, “While many other festivals have completely canceled their 2020 editions, SEEfest has not only kept up its programming, but managed to produce the full festival on one of the top software platforms in the world which serves the likes of Cannes, American Film Market, and Hollywood studios.”

The 2020 festival edition, SEEfest’s 15th annual, features a rigorously curated program of 57 films highlighting the cinematic expressions of South East Europe’s cultural diversity across twenty countries.

North American premieres in the program include, among others, three remarkable debuts: Romania’s Legacy, a rare psychological thriller from the country known for its trailblazing new wave cinema; Kosovo’s haunting story about motherhood and struggles with war times traumas in Zana; and mother-daughter story about aging in the modern world, Pilate, an adaptation of the novel by the celebrated Hungarian writer, Magda Szabó.

Also on the program are Bulgarian My Gypsy Road whose heroine is the first-ever Roma woman to graduate from the Academy of Dramatic Arts; and Bora, Stories of a Wind, a visually magnificent parable about freedom paying a poignant tribute to the multi-ethnic intersection of Slavic, Italian, and Germanic cultures in the Northern Adriatic.

All program information and links are published here.

Festival passes and individual tickets are available at https://athome.seefilmla.org/.

Diary of Diana B at SEEfest 2020 Online Cinema

Watch “The Diary of Diana B.”

Austrian-born Diana Budisavljević leads the comfortable life of the Zagreb upper-middle class when in the fall of 1941 she learns that Jewish and Serbian (Christian Orthodox) women and their children are being taken to Ustasha camps where they are left to die of starvation and disease. Since the Jewish Community is only allowed to send provisions to the Jewish prisoners, the equally vulnerable Serbian women and children are left helpless.

This is the untold story of how Diana organized the largest rescue operation, a campaign that, by the end of World War II, will have saved more than 10,000 children from certain death.
