Public Debate ‘Creation Vs Destruction’

Is the creation a possible answer?

At its 10th anniversary, the Beldocs Festival has created a special category ‘Creation Vs Destruction’, where the selection of films and their themes coincide with a wish to speak in an engaged manner and actively about some of the neuralgic issues of our time: extremist movements and ideas, their destructive impact on society and system of values, terror, terrorism and fear, but also about resistance to destructive powers.
Organisation of the programme, film screenings and talks with authors were facilitated by the support of the Open Society Foundation, while the programme is being jointly run by the Beldocs Festival and the German organisation Forum ZDF, Belgrade.
The entrance to the debate is free, while simultaneous interpretation is provided.
